Bernie Thorn has worked in public libraries for many years, presenting hundreds of children’s story times encouraging a delight in books and reading. She enjoys drawing and painting anything in the garden. Plants, birds, and insects find their way onto her sketchpad. She finds inspiration in the small and beautiful parts of nature. Bernie lives in South Eastern Victoria, Australia, has two grown-up children and an adventurous grandchild who loves playing in water and dirt, the messier the better. While her children were growing-up she was lucky enough to live on a few acres with chickens, lizards, snakes, possums, pet sheep and horses all of which has provided her with many stories to tell.
