Looking for Lily

Take a fantastical trip to a magical world and meet four tiny sprites with attitude!

In between heavy metal practise sessions and cheeky pranks, Talia, Lily, Marri and Dawn get caught up in some scary adventures. When Lily suddenly disappears, her sprite siblings fear the worst.

Who can they trust? Winston the rainbow trout? Rocket the magpie? Who is friend, and who is foe?

With a clever plan, and a few tricks up their sleeves, the sprites bravely face up to the dangers and risk themselves to save each other. But are they too late?

Looking for Lily would not have been possible without the love, encouragement and support of my fans, friends and family.

Thank you to Gregory Apps for reading way too many drafts and not complaining too much when I asked silly questions about tiny things in the middle of the night. Or wrote when I should have been sleeping! Thank you to my team for helping me publish independently: Alison Mutton, Arnetta at Line Upon Line, Makenzi Crouch and Ingrid Waltham. Thanks to my researchers: James Florisson (my fish dude), Annette McCutcheon (my flora and fauna gal) and Peter at Seed West (my seed guy). Thanks to HM Waugh for the tea and quiet times; and Nat Amoore, Kathryn Lefroy, Deb Fitzpatrick and Sue Whiting for the advice. Thanks to Sally Rippin, Meg McKinlay, Rebecca Timmis and Tim Harris for answering my questions without knowing me. And lots of hugs for my beta readers: Julie Brown, Jo Cochrane, Thomas Clarke, Claire Ramsay, Emily Rostirolla, Claire Morgan, Lucy Veryard, Holly Veryard and members of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) Australia West. Last, the biggest thank you is for my dad for believing in me. I love you.
