About Kristin

I live in South Australia in a house sort-of-near the sea with my husband, two sons, three turtles, four goldfish, five spiny leaf insects, hundreds of earthworms and a canary called Stephen Fly. As well as being a poet, I am also a storywriter, teacher, gardener, cook and a mum.

You can read some more of my poems in Tadpoles in the Torrens, Poems for young readers, edited by Jude Aquilina and published by Wakefield Press in 2013.

Some of my poems and stories have been published in Touchdown, Count Down, Orbit and Blast Off (The School Magazine). If you live in Australia then you may have seen these magazines in your school library. I have also had a story published in Aquila, which is a magazine from the UK. I also have poems published on the wonderful website Australian Children’s Poetry.

My adult poetry book Paint the Sky has recently been published by Ginninderra Press. It is available through Ginninderra’s Website.
