A woman smiling

Meg McKinlay is a children’s writer and poet. She has published seventeen books for children, ranging from picture books through to young adult novels, and a collection of poetry for adults. Her children’s writing has won the Prime Minister’s Literary Award, the Queensland Literary Award, the Davitt Award for Crimewriting and the Aurealis Award for Speculative Fiction. Her latest titles are the middle-grade novel Catch a Falling Star and picture book Let Me Sleep, Sheep!, both published in 2019.
