Lesley Gibbes

Lesley Gibbes was born in Sydney, Australia and grew up in leafy Avalon on Sydney’s beautiful Northern Beaches. Her childhood was filled with fun days at the beach, picnics and ice creams with her older brother, David and younger sister, Annette.

Jane Covernton at Working Title Press picked my first picture book, ‘Scary Night’ out of the slush pile in 2012. I was delighted and danced the conga with my children who thought I’d gone mad! 

Today I spend my days writing, reading and mucking about with my family and my two very naughty Jack Russell terriers Cosworth and Porsche.
