My name is Rory Hammersley-Mather, I live in Toowoomba, Australia. I work at the Toowoomba City Library in the Young Peoples Department where I facilitate story time to children of various ages. I have been in this position for over two years. This has given me a great understanding of the type/style of books children engage with.
I have written many children’s picture books but am only now at the point where I am looking at options of getting an agent and published. Last year one of my stories – a Middle Grade story titled Hansel and Gretel: Zombie Siblings won the Gold Coast Writers’ Association Novel Award for 2016.
I am 27 years old and firmly believe that I have a career in writing ahead of me. I love writing but also have a passion for engaging with people and would love to be able to do school and library visits in support of my work. I have a Bachelor of Arts majoring in History and International Relations.
I live with my wife Georgia, and our two puppies Hugo and Cooper.
