About the Author

Krys Saclier believes children's literature has the power to shape the future. Her first picture book, Super Nova, was written with assistance from an Australia Council grant. She hopes it inspires readers to be heroes in their own way.

Krys has written for television, radio and press and also worked as a primary school teacher and electoral educator (ask her anything about preferential voting).

She is the creator of the Kids Only podcast, which features original short audio stories for children. She coordinated the ACT Branch of the Children's Book Council of Australia's Make Your Own Story Book competition for school students. Krys is also a founding member of the Canberra Children's Writers' Group and a devoted member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).

She lives with her lovely family and a non-stop Burmese cat.
