After a long career in children’s services working in preschool, out of school hours care and museum settings Tricia is now a full time writer living on the beautiful south coast of NSW.
Tricia’s poems have been published in anthologies and children’s magazines. She has won short story and poetry competitions in Australia and the UK.
Mr. Pickle’s Pet Shop is a fun poem because it describes a pet shop that those of us who love pet shops (and pets!) would really like to visit. Who could resist taking a magician’s rabbit or a pet dragon home?
Patricia is proud to be a Creative Kids Tales book reviewer.
