Name: Lorraine Slim
Preoccupation: Writer of YA Novels and short stories
History: Grew up and married in Yorkshire, England. Emigrated to Australia, living in Sydney, the Central coast of NSW and now Brisbane. I began writing in 2011 because when my daughter and I were looking for adventure books the comment was that there were few and far for the tween-teen-YA age group. Disappointed with the response we left empty handed. Of course later we found quite the opposite. There are some brilliant authors out there producing excellent work. I want to join them.
