Valerie Thomas

Valerie Thomas

Valerie Thomas was born in Australia and has lived there for most of her life. She has worked as a teacher, as well as an educational researcher and curriculum consultant in the area of spelling.

Valerie has travelled to most corners of the world, and has written about her travels: the first piece of writing she had published was an account of her experience picking grapes for the champagne harvest in France. Today, Valerie tries to make sure that her travels help her miss winter.

In 1987 her phenomenally successful children's book Winnie the Witch, illustrated by Korky Paul, was published by Oxford University Press. Winnie has since enjoyed many more remarkable adventures, with amazing pumpkins, flying carpets and baby dragons!
