About the Author : Jenny Gahan

Jenny is an experienced primary and special education teacher, passionate about sharing her love of reading and writing with children.  She loves to write stories, both fiction and non-fiction, that encourage children to use their imagination, ask questions, and engage with their world.


Jenny’s first picture book, ‘A Rainbow of Feathers’ was published in 2020.  It tells the story of a baby lorikeet finding her colours, and features Australian birds including a Rainbow Lorikeet, a blue Fairy Wren, a Scarlet Honeyeater, a Yellow Robin, and a green Fig Parrot.

Jenny lives in Brisbane with her cat, Zoe, who thinks she is human.  Zoe loves to walk across the computer keyboard and add a few words of her own to Jenny’s stories.

When she’s not writing Jenny enjoys photography, painting, and holidays, and in the future hopes to visit more of the places that inspire her work.

About the Illustrator: Patricia Ward

Being an only child, Patricia spent much of her time living in her imagination, bringing it to life through drawing and illustration. She loves exploring colour and playing with positive and negative spaces. Her work is vibrant and whimsical, with an underlying sense of a narrative. Patricia believes every illustration should tell a story, whether it is accompanied by text or not.

This will be Trish’s third Children’s Picture book with Little Pink Dog Books – The first being The Glint of Gold (2021) and the second being Big Boss (2022)
