June Perkins, Childrens Author and Poet
I'm a storyteller and award winning author working in many creative mediums - writing, blogging, video and photography with a background studying empowerment and extensive practical experience in community development.
Born to a Papua New Guinean mother and Australian Father my first remembered home was Tasmania, an island state of Australia. I lived there for twenty years. I now call Queensland home, and love to write with a sense of local environment and space, but with a connection to a global outlook.
Currently I produce multiplatform story projects celebrating nature, music and peace.
n 2016 I published Magic Fish Dreaming through crowd funding and undertook a mentorship for picture book writing (won at the end of 2015) from the Australian Society of Authors.
Magic Fish Dreaming won several Royal Dragonfly awards in 2017, placing second in Environment, Children's Poetry, Book Trailer and Picture book for over 6s. It also received an Honorable mention in Cultural Diversity
