Rhonda Ooi is an emerging children’s author and primary school teacher with an interest and specialist qualification in Gifted Education. She has completed both Writing Picture Books and the Writing Picture Books masterclass at the Australian Writers’ Centre.
She has a passion for children’s literature and has been using picture books as springboards for learning, since she started her teaching career.
Rhonda thinks that the children she has encountered over her career have taught her just as much as she has taught them and along with her son, they are often the inspiration for her stories.
When she is not writing or in the classroom, Rhonda loves to dance and spend time with her husband, teenage son, cat and children’s book collection.
