Nicola Connelly

My name is Nicola Connelly and I am an emerging Australian author. The stories that I write are based on real life experiences and those I like to read now and when I was a child. 
I am a primary school teacher with a passion to write children’s books. The last two years I have been teaching year one in Queensland and have been surrounded by books for young children. I am also currently studying my Masters in Education (major in teacher-librarianship), which has given me the opportunity to study children’s literature. 
As a member, I have also attended writing courses with the Queensland Writing Centre which has given me a great insight to the world of creating writing. I have now written quite a few manuscripts and am starting on the journey to having them published.
