T C Shelley

T C Shelley has been writing since she was a child, so it makes sense she would want to write for children, and as an educator of children feels comfortable with her target audience. Her novel 'The Monster Who Wasn't' is a middle-grade fantasy and the first in a trilogy.

Shelley lives in Perth, Western Australia.
