When Marjorie was a little girl she often escaped to the library, spending hours devouring picture books and minutely examining their illustrations. Consequently it was a surprise to no one that she decided to become an illustrator.
Marjorie has illustrated several children’s books and her magazine work includes The School Magazine and Australian Geographic. Her books appear on the Premier’s Reading Challenge lists and have been shortlisted and won awards, including the CBCA Eve Pownall Award for her first picture book.
Her picture books include Brothers from a Different Mother (Penguin Random House), One Christmas Eve (Black Dog Books, and imprint of Walker), and The Croc and the Platypus (Walker Books).
Marjorie is an assistant regional advisor for SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand.
