Raewyn Caisley was born in New Zealand but has lived in Australia for the past twenty years, in Fremantle, WA, with her husband Terry and their son Jack. Raewyn is the author of books for younger readers that include bestselling Aussie Bites and Nibbles titles such as Monkey Trix, The Big Waves, The Mermaid's Tail and Tai's Penguin, and The Queen's Cubby. She is also the author of junior sports fiction titles Not Cricket, In Union, Karate Star, Tennis Star, Great Lead, Hot Shot and Top Marks.
Hello From Nowhere was inspired by the year she and her husband lived in the outback. That was the year she discovered there are still places on earth where animals will come and look at you because they haven't learned to be afraid, where you can leave a footprint in the dirt and it will stay there until it rains (which could be a long time), and where people can have more remarkable adventures than any writer could ever dream up!
