Presenter: Georgie Donaghey


Georgie is a full-time working mother with three gorgeous kids, all at various stages of their life. Ever since she can remember she has been writing, even winning an award in the Sunday Telegraph at eight, for a poem about the dentist. As her life progressed, her writing changed, and she found herself interested in writing murder mysteries for adults.

Shortly after the birth of her son over 16 years ago, Georgie started writing for children, and this is where she has settled since. The joy of watching a child lose themselves in the adventure of the written word is too intoxicating to ever give up.

Shortly after Georgie’s 3-year tenure as President of the CBCA Sutherland Shire Sub branch, she found a need for emerging children's authors in the writing community. Where could an emerging author display their work, network with others, find up to date publisher and competition information and every tool they might need on their journey to publication?

In 2011, as a commitment to fill that void and with the assistance of my supportive husband, Creative Kids Tales was born. This has become a valuable resource for Australian emerging children’s authors and provide a unique website packed with everything emerging authors and illustrators need on their creative journey. 

In May 2015, Georgie’s first picture book, Lulu will be published with Dragon Tales Publishing.
