Speaker Bio:

Michelle Worthington

She is a real-life book fairy. Michelle Worthington’s magic powers include turning coffee into award-winning picture books published all over the world. Blessed with an overactive imagination, she has been writing poetry and stories from a very early age and now credits her three sons with giving her a continued endless source of inspiration for her writing, as well as her wrinkles and high blood pressure.

Born and bred in Brisbane, she is proud to write books that Australian kids can see their lives mirrored in and children all over the world can lose themselves in. Her picture book, Yellow Dress Day, was featured on ABC Kids Play School, which was a highlight in her career, as like most Aussie kids, she grew up watching the program.

As Founder of Share Your Story Australia, she waves her wand to coach aspiring authors and illustrators to achieve their dreams of publication. Whether she’s a book fairy, a mermaid, a pirate, or an elf, Michelle celebrates the power of words. Her goal is to make children fall in love with books, the most magical gift of all.
