Meet The Author

Abbey Lane

Abbey grew up in Melbourne and is 1 of 5 wild and wonderful children. 

Abbey's flair for storytelling started at a young age, with slap stick rhyme being her childhood passion. Her mother would laugh heartily, praising her prowess with the pencil - the way only a mother could. Several decades later, and with a lot of practice and learning, Abbey has reached a point where she is finally ready to share her stories with others.

 She now lives in Sydney with her family. Fun-loving and mischievous, she loves to splash into the world of adventures with a child-like spirit! Although Abbey has two grown up children, she hopes to never fully grow up herself.
