Lynelle Kendall is a writer, early childhood educator and mother.
She writes short form children’s fiction: poetry, picture books, short stories and junior fiction with a delightful mix of humour, enchantment and adventure. Her characters include a bumbling crew of pirates, a hyperactive mouse, a group of dinosaur circus performers, an ambitious robot, a fairy with attitude and children who discover magical creatures in their own backyard.
Lynelle believes a special kind of magic happens when stories are shared and that children’s books play a vital role in winning the next generation over to a love of reading. She’s seen this magic in her own life and the lives of children around her. She loves that:
– Treasured tales never get old (even on the hundredth read)
– Characters can become lifelong friends
– Words are doorways into new worlds and new ways of seeing and
– Imagination has no bounds.
Lynelle Kendall lives in the Northern Territory. Other than reading and writing, she loves fairy bread, op shopping and camping with her family.
