When a voice wakes you up in the middle of the night and tells you to write a mystery series what’s a writer to do? That’s how Virginia King came to create Selkie Moon. After this nocturnal message, she sat down at the keyboard until Selkie Moon turned up. Soon Virginia was hooked, exploring far-flung places full of superstition and secrets on Selkie’s journey of self-discovery.
Before Selkie Moon invaded her life, Virginia had been a teacher, an unemployed ex-teacher, the author of over 50 children’s books, an audio-book producer, a workshop presenter and a prize-winning publisher. These days she lives in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney with her husband and four alpacas, where she disappears most days into Selkie Moon’s latest adventure.
