Ebony-Jane Carroll was born and lives in Melbourne Australia. Known best for her whimsical children’s books written in rhyme, she has created a dedicated young fan base who love to read about her unusual characters and their heart-warming journeys.
Her past success includes winning the 2007 MAFMAD (Make A Film. Make a Difference) competition with two scripts making the top eight shortlist. She produced the short film entitled Pose with a handpicked cast and crew and saw it released in cinemas across Victoria.
Ebony-Jane has both undergrad and postgrad qualifications in education and is passionate about inspiring young children to fall in love with literature. A former kindergarten teacher, now an early childhood consultant, Ebony-Jane divides her time between creative writing and working at Monash University in the Faculty of Education.
Her early childhood blog The Wonder Years is a collection of simple and practical tips for parents. Topics are gleaned from her own nannying, childcare and teaching experiences, latest research and best practice from professional development seminars, workshops and lectures, regular discussions with early childhood teachers and experts, a wide variety of books, podcasts and more.
Ebony-Jane is currently working on a children’s animation screenplay and her biggest dream is to one day pitch it to either Disney, Dreamworks or Pixar.
