About Kristin

Hi! My name is Kristin Martin. I live in South Australia in a house near the sea with my husband, two adult children, three turtles, four green tree frogs and a bearded dragon named Ash. I am a picture book author, poet, nature photographer and also a teacher and a mum.

Here are photos of my 4 green tree frogs. They all look very different, don’t they?

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 (a magazine from the UK) and a poem published in The Caterpillar (a magazine from Ireland). And I have poems published on the website Australian Children’s Poetry.

My poetry book for grown-ups, Paint the Sky, was published by Ginninderra Press in late 2016. It is available through Ginninderra’s Website.
