Dimity Powell loves filling every spare moment with words. She is the Managing Editor for Kids' Book Review and writes and reviews exclusively for children with over 30 published stories. If kids’ stories were ice cream, picture books would be her favourite flavour. She’s even churned out a few of her own including The Fix-It Man, (2017), At the End of Holyrood Lane, (2018) – SCBWI Crystal Kite 2019 Australia NZ Award winner, and Pippa, (2019) with more to come. Oswald Messweather is her first picture book with Wombat Books.
She is an accredited Write Like An Author facilitator, the Roving Reporter Coordinator for SCBWI Australia East NZ conferences and is an experienced presenter, panel host and moderator both online and at writing festivals and conferences in Australia and overseas who enjoys sharing her love of story in front of crowds of very small and tall people. It says on her website, www.dimitypowell.com, so it must be true.
Dimity loves eating cake with ice cream, sailing on the beam and writing in her diary although combining all three makes her nauseous. Dimity lives around the corner from Bat Man on the Gold Coast, although they rarely hang out. Such are the lives of authors and superheroes.
