About the Author Mem Fox (by Mem Fox)

From the Mem Fox url - I was born in Melbourne, Australia, in March 1946, but left at the age of six months to go to Africa with my parents, who were missionaries. The mission we lived on, Hope Fountain, was a limited miles within the city of Bulawayo, in Zimbabwe, which utilized to be called Rhodesia. In my initially year at the mission school I was truly the only white child thus all my friends were black. We learned to write by drawing our letters in the red world. Later, we graduated to composing squeakily on slates. Then, naturally, I utilize a computer, but I nonetheless employ a pencil and paper whenever I have a writing issue to resolve. My mind likes it when I write in pencil.

My father's name-Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge-is moreover the title of my 2nd book. Miss Nancy, in the same book, is my mother; the rest of Miss Nancy's name originates from the names of my 2 sisters, both of whom are young than I am: Jan Delacourt (who utilized to be Jan Delacourt Cooper) and Alison Partridge.

In the mid-sixties, totally unsophisticated, I went to drama school in London and invested 3 happy years changing my highlight, talking Shakespeare, singing Beatles' songs, wearing miniskirts, and dyeing my hair-a habit I haven't grown from. It's been red for a long time, and can stay thus until I die. Being a red-head has become my brand, my recognizable logo.

I took a terrific risk in 1969 and married an Englishman-a instructor of drama, who is today a gorgeous retired drama lecturer. Malcolm and I have lived happily ever after. Our daughter, Chloë, to whom Possum Magic is devoted, was born in 1971. She was journalist for 7 years, is today a significant school instructor of French and English at a Catholic girls' school, and has been pre-selected as a Labor Party prospect for the state seat of Bright in South Australia, in the March 2006 elections.

Back to me-after all, this really is all about me!!-as a mature age college student in my early thirties, I studied children's literature at Flinders University. This set me, totally unawares, found on the road to fame and even fortune because it was during that course that I wrote the initially draft of my initial book: Possum Magic. It was refused 9 instances over five years but went on to become (and has been, to the day) the best-selling children's book in Australia, with over 2 million duplicates sold. In 2004 its 21st birthday was celebrated with parties and occasions in thousands of universities and different places around Australia, along with a modern re-designed edition was established. The colors of the authentic movie of the illustrations were fading because it had been reprinted a lot of instances.

Since Possum Magic I have created 28 books for youngsters. Around half of these have become ideal sellers which merely goes to show that from time to time I write pathetic books and also superb ones! Some of my books have different titles and different illustrators in the USA but basically they are the same inside.

One of the number one moves I ever prepared was to re-train, in 1981, from drama into literacy research to locate out how youngsters ideal discover to read and write. Literacy has become the awesome focus of my life-it's my passion, my battle and my mission and my fatigue. If you are the parent of the child aged from 0-7 I hope you'll enjoy my ideal marketing books for parents: Reading Magic: how your child will discover to read before school and additional read aloud miracles. If you are a instructor I hope you are challenged and thrilled by my book Radical Reflections, about the training of reading and composing.

Writing is my 2nd love. My initially is training, to which I admit an addiction thus effective that I'm amazed I had the courage to retire early (in 1996, aged 50) from my position as Associate Professor, Literacy Studies, in the School of Education at Flinders University, South Australia. I taught there with awesome reassurance and joy, fulltime, for twenty 4 years. I cried 3 instances in my last class.

I today spend nearly all of my time composing presentations urging parents, teachers, and others to read aloud to kids aged between 0-5, and I travel the globe doing it. I travel a good deal as an influential global literacy consultant to places as diverse as Guam, Tanzania, China, and naturally to the USA which I have visited 83 occasions (I'm composing this in March 2005). I have spoken at hundreds and hundreds of conventions in the States. I furthermore travel-I mean I function like a tired older dog!-extensively about Australia too, which I especially adore since this nation is my house.

If you read this, and like my books, and keep obtaining them, I promise to continue to write pic books for kids despite the reality it's the toughest job in the globe and more of the grind that many persons understand.

I reside in a beachside suburb in Adelaide, South Australia, with my spouse and 2 divine small dogs. Chloe lives close by. And I have beautiful neighbors that are the incredibly significant to me. Perhaps that's why I wrote my newest book about friendship. It's called Hunwick's Egg and is illustrated by Pamela Lofts. She and I haven't worked together since Koala Lou in 1988, and everyone likes Koala Lou, so my hopes are significant for my small bilby, Hunwick…
