Elaine Ouston has a Master of Letters in Creative Writing. Through Gondor Writers' Centre she offers many services to authors interested in preparing for submission or self-publishing, including manuscript appraisals and edits and writing workshops. She organises literary festivals for Australian Literary Festivals and Book Fairs.
She has many published books. They include two chapter books, Lost in a Strange Land and The Bunyip in the Billabong, and a picture book called The Lost Shoes. Two books in the middle grade fantasy series, The Mystery of Nida Valley that contain Australian megafauna have been released and she is working on the third. The non-fiction book, Meet The Megafauna was released late last year. Her new release, Dippy the Dancing Diprotodon is the first book in a series of picture books that will feature two of the animals interacting as they would have in the wild. This one features the marsupial lion and the diprotodon.
She is passionate about teaching children about the little-known megafauna of Australia. She is available for book signings and author talks about her books and the animals, or for writing workshops for adults or children. Her sessions are interactive, educational, and engaging. The books are available through Morris Publishing Australia, bookshops, online bookshops, and all library suppliers.
