Children's Author

Renee is a children’s author based on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.  She is passionate about creating profound social change by providing children, teachers and parents with the positive language needed for healthy social and emotional development.  She is the author of picture books, The Strongest Boy, and Rosie Leads the Way.  These books were written to redefine what it means for boys to be strong and what it means for girls to be beautiful.

Renee was first published in 2019, but her work was quickly recognised by well-known leading educators, psychologists, and parenting experts such as Maggie Dent, Dr Justin Coulson and Pinky McKay.  The Strongest Boy made the top 100 best sellers list for picture books on boys and men and was also an international book award finalist (Book Excellence Awards).

As an educational specialist, Renee writes for many prominent early childhood organisations such as Community Early Learning Australia, Learning Links and SDN Children’s Services.  She was recently acknowledged by the AusMumpreneur Network for her outstanding success in writing and was named as the winner in the Author of the Year Category.

Renee is dedicated to providing positive early literacy experiences and giving our children the social and emotional skills required to navigate this ever-changing, sometimes overwhelming world.
