About & Schools

Wombat Books is an independent growing publisher creating quality books to respect, love, share and connect with. We publish books with new and established authors.

Wombat Books will consider new publications through a traditional process from predominantly Australian authors. We are primarily interested in books for children including picture books, early readers and middle fiction.

Wombat Books was founded by Rochelle Stephens, director and publisher. In 2018, Rhiza Edge was developed as a young adult imprint connected to Wombat, giving voice to overlooked or silence teens.

Rhiza Press has published a range of non-fiction, fiction and faith inspired words for adults and teens.
