Stephanie Owen Reeder

Welcome to my website! I’m a children’s author with an abiding love of books, history and art. I particularly enjoy bringing Australian history to life through my award-winning Heritage Heroes series of books, which combine storytelling with historical information. I also dabble in the world of picture books as an author and an illustrator, as well as reviewing children’s picture books for Fairfax Media and editing a range of both adult and children’s books. Before becoming a full-time author, I worked as a secondary school teacher, a librarian, a university lecturer and an editor at Federal Parliament. I live in Canberra, Australia, and I am the proud mother of three adult children, including twins, and the besotted grandmother of two grandsons and one grand-daughter, all of whom inspire my writing. I hope you find all the information on me and my books that you need here.
