Lili Wilkinson remembers the day in Beijing when she learnt to read ‘in her head’. She was six and has been immersed in the world of books since. It’s an obsession she shares with her mother, Carole Wilkinson (the China trip was the germ that sprouted the award-winning Dragonkeeper). Lili was first published when she was only eleven, in Voiceworks, a creative writing magazine for young people. Following an honours degree in Creative Arts and six months of teaching English in Japan, Lili began working at the Centre for Youth Literature, State Library of Victoria. Lili lives in inner Melbourne, and loves reading, quality TV, the work of Jim Henson and Japanese food.
