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 publications such as the Canberra Times, the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age. Before becoming a full-time author, I worked as a 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. If not, please contact me!
