"Stories are our super-power. They are what connect us and binds humanity together.
Everyone has this super-power.
It's time we started to use it."
Author / illustrator, Christina Booth considered being an Olympic athlete, a hairdresser or an archaeologist when she grew up, but she wasn’t as good at them as she was at drawing and writing stories, so she became an author.
Christina is the award-winning author of eight, and illustrator of over twenty books for children. She loves that she gets to tell stories and colour in as a job and is passionate about helping others to find the story-teller inside them.
Awarded a CBCA Honour Book Award for her picture book Kip, Christina has won numerous Notable Book Awards and The Environment Award for Children’s Literature for her story, Welcome Home.
Trained as a teacher and artist, Christina has always loved books, art and reading. Her earliest memories include going to the library in her pyjamas, and cuddling books in bed instead of a teddy bear.
Christina is represented by her agent, Brian Cook (The Authors' Agent), and by The Children's Bookshop Speakers' Agency. She is a
Books in Homes Program ambassador, the ASA representative and
joint SCBWI Coordinator for Southern Tasmania.
