About Me (Georgie)
At eight years old, Georgie was bitten by a redback spider. That same year, she won her first writing competition.
As a grown-up, Georgie is an internationally published, award-winning children’s author, mentor, publisher and founder of Creative Kids Tales and the CKT Speakers Agency.
Her books have featured on Kinderling Kids Radio, as well as the Qantas and Jetstar In-flight Entertainment channels. Her latest book, In the Shadow of an Elephant, was a finalist in the 2019 International Books Awards.
Georgie hosted The Author’s Shelf on 2SSR. She interviewed high-profile creatives like Captain Underpants author; Dav Pilkey, Jackie French, McLeod’s Daughters creator; Posie Graeme-Evans, and Andy Griffiths.
Georgie believes all emerging authors and illustrators should have a voice. In 2011, she founded Creative Kids Tales. Through this industry recognised resource Georgie has guided many authors towards their first publication contracts. She’s even tried on the publisher’s hat to see how it would fit. It didn’t talk back like Harry Potter’s did, but it has helped dozens of children’s authors and illustrators realise their publication dream.
In December 2019, Georgie launched an exciting new direction for Creative Kids Tales, The Creative Kids Tales Speakers Agency.
Never knowing where inspiration will strike next, Georgie carries a notepad wherever she goes. She even has a waterproof notepad stuck to her shower wall.
