As a young child, Norah Colvin dreamed of being a famous author and practised every chance she got. As a young adult, she aspired to write short stories like O. Henry, novels like Patrick White, and picture books like Mem Fox. She never stopped writing. She likes nothing better than sharing stories with young children and, one day, hopes to be sharing stories of her own. She lives in Brisbane Australia where she loves to watch the butterflies and birds that frequent her garden.
Norah is an ex-teacher, having spent over twenty years in lower primary classrooms. She is a published freelance writer for the educational market. She has written teacher and student notes for the Jacaranda Wiley Software Department and for Greygum Software; workbooks for Pascal Press, Macmillan and Oz Education; and was employed by Education Queensland to write lower primary science materials for the C2C curriculum. She writes constantly for her blogs and educational website. She cares deeply about education, especially in empowerment from reading.
Norah belongs to the following writers’ groups:
- Queensland Writers Centre
- Book Links
- Write Links
- Writing NSW
- and other Facebook writing groups
