Rikki-Lee Arnold has been writing books since the age of seven, when she would spend her Saturday mornings creating worlds and characters while watching Rage and Video Hits. These days, she is also a sports journalist and has worked through her decade-long career at The Courier-Mail and Sunday Mail covering NRL, women's league, tennis, AFLW, cricket and more. Her combined love of writing and sports – particularly women’s sport – has led to her debut middle grade novel, The First Tackle. Rikki-Lee lives in Brisbane with her supportive husband and her two cheeky sons.
