Thalia Kalkipsakis

Thalia grew up on a farm on the outskirts of Melbourne with a mum who tried to save battery hens by on-selling them as backyard chickens. Her dad worked as an industrial chemist while also growing strawberries, carrots and Christmas trees on the farm. It was common for her to find plant shoots in the freezer, or the hair dryer missing because it was needed to heat one of her dad’s experiments.
Thalia's childhood showed her the magic that can happen when science and nature combine with human creativity.She has written over twenty books for children and teenagers, including the popular Go Girl! series, with many released into countries around the world. Her latest release is the Lifespan of Starlight trilogy, which was a finalist in the Sara Douglass Book Series Award.
