Maura Pierlot has been reading and writing stories for as long as she can remember. She pretends to be an adult but secretly she’s still a teenager inside; maybe that’s why she loves writing for children and young adults. Inspired by her music-loving children, Maura’s first picture book, The Trouble in Tune Town, won the 2018 ACT Writing and Publishing Awards.

Her latest play, Fragments recently played to sell-out crowds at Canberra’s Street Theatre, and her young adult novel will be published in 2020. When she’s not busy thinking, dreaming, laughing or creating – and sometimes even when she is – Maura enjoys spending time with her family at their avocado farm near the coast, a property they share with wombats, echidnas, lyrebirds, kangaroos and two energetic Bordoodle pups. Maura loves thunderstorms, cheesecake and crossword puzzles, not necessarily in that order. She tries to learn something new every day.
