Lian Tanner has been dynamited while scuba diving and arrested while busking. She once spent a week in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, hunting for a Japanese soldier left over from the Second World War. Nowadays she lives by the beach in southern Tasmania with a large fluffy tomcat called Harry-le-beau.
She is the author of The Rogues trilogy, The Keepers trilogy and The Hidden/Icebreaker trilogy for middle grade readers. She has also written books for younger children, Ella and the Ocean, a picture book, and A Clue for Clara, which won this year’s Davitt Award for Best Children’s Crime Novel.
You can catch up with Lian at the Writing for Young Adults and Island of Curiosities sessions at Hadleys, and she will also be reading from A Clue for Clara at the FREE Children’s Events, on Parliament Lawns, on both Saturday and Sunday.
