I am a Canberra-based author who likes writing stories for young people. My stories can be scary, funny, spooky and strange, but that’s the way I like it. I hope you don’t mind. I like dinosaurs, aliens, dragons and drawing. I would rather write about imaginary lands and places, but sometimes the real world creeps into my head and won’t go away until I put it in a story. I think the real-world stories are the scariest of all. They are definitely the hardest to write.
C.M. Simpson spent the first twenty years of her life living in different parts of Queensland and the Northern Territory, Australia. She wrote stories for most of that time, drawing on the different landscapes she encountered, and giving a hyper-active imagination somewhere to run. She spent a few years in Melbourne earning her undergraduate degree in Literature, a post-graduate Bachelor of Teaching, and a Master of Arts in Literature and Writing. She has been a freelance editor for over thirteen years and has written four collections of short stories and poetry, and a number of novels.
Madeleine Torr writes tales of contemporary romance and romantic suspense. She was born in far north Queensland and spent much of my childhood along the coastal fringe in such places as Bowen, Proserpine and Cairns. The Tasmanian and Melbourne settings for Secondhand Sweetheart are drawn from her memories of years spent in Melbourne, earning a Master of Arts in writing and literature, and time she spent in Tasmania with her immediate family. Madeleine Torr is a pen name for C. M. Simpson who lives in Canberra, where she continues to write romance, science fiction and fantasy.
