About Bernadette

Bernadette Green grew up loving animals and being outside. She was no happier than when she was high up in a tree or riding her horse, Blue. As a young girl she dreamed of becoming a writer but life took her in many different directions. She trained as a youth worker and shiatsu therapist before returning to writing and studying Professional Writing and Editing at RMIT.

Bernadette’s passionate about children’s writing and believes every child should be able to see themselves in the books they read. She lives in Melbourne with her partner, Jennifer, their two daughters and dog, Coco.

‘A gorgeous story with an understanding and tender heart. There’s a lot of humour within, a nurturing of curiosity and absurdity but overall; it’s a story about family, and love – always love.’
–Danielle Binks, Alpha Reader
