Bron Nicholls was born in Melbourne in 1944. After the war, her demobbed father took his family to an isolated region on the Broken Creek in Northern Victoria. Bron’s passion for books and writing began in that lonely, vast, fascinating bushland. Over the years, Bron has been a nurse, art teacher, English as a second language teacher, children’s book illustrator and tutor in Drama and Television at Rusden State College, Victoria.

Now in her sixties, she still regards writing as her main job. Her books before An Imaginary Mother are:
