Larissa Dufty (writing as Larissa Dee)
Larissa is an aspiring Children’s book author who is passionate about children’s literature. She loves to awaken the imagination of children through stories.
She has always enjoyed writing creatively; though the love for Children’s literature was boosted when she became a mum.
When Larissa was a child, her parents owned a second-hand book shop. So, growing up with an almost unlimited supply of books nurtured her love for reading and developed her interest in literature and language.
She has studied English literature at Charles Sturt University, with a focus on creative writing, and is currently completing a secondary English teaching degree. She has also completed the Writing Chapter Books for 6–9-year-olds course through The Australian Writers Centre; and TheScribbles Academy with Jen Storer.
