Kids books

Jesse wanted to be a vet from the age of five, but instead she ended up becoming a writer. She lives near an extinct volcano in northern New South Wales with a water dragon called Kinky, a koala called Blinky, a python called Slinky and three goldfish still looking for names.

Jesse’s junior novels are about unlikely friendships between humans and animals, all inspired by real world creatures and their stories. They are Stay The Last Dog in Antarctica (ABC Books 2013), Paruku The Desert Brumby (ABC Books 2014) and Dexter the Courageous Koala (ABC Books 2015).
