About the Author: Ashling Kwok
Ashling wrote her first picture book when she was 14 years old. Although it never saw the light of day, Ashling knew from that day onwards that she wanted to spend the rest of her life writing for children.
After graduating from University, Ashling went on to become a journalist before setting up her own freelance writing company. Over the years, Ashling’s work has appeared in a number of newspapers and magazines, and she is a regular contributor to a variety of online publications.
Ashling’s first picture book, Where’s my Dinosaur? (Yellow Brick Books) is due for release in late 2019. This will be followed by Lola and Grandpa (Little Pink Dog Books) and The Battle (EK Books) in 2020.
When she’s not dreaming up new ideas or working on her latest book, Ashling can be found scouring local bookstores, marvelling at all the wonderful books being created by talented children’s authors.
