Hello... my name is Gilly-Elle and I am a children's author. I was born and bred in Manchester, UK, but moved to Brisbane, Australia in 2009 in search of sunshine! Before that I graduated in Speech and Language Therapy from the University of Manchester. I have also studied a Masters in Disability Studies and am also a published researcher.
I am very passionate about children's language development and write in rhymes in order to promote these important language skills. I write to provide children with books that help them feel loved, adored, secure and inspired to follow their dreams. I also like to help children understand the world and have used rhyme to assist children's understanding of some complex topics (such as IVF).
I have written over 20 books ranging in nature and am working on getting them together and out into the public domain which is super exciting! My books are written to encourage parent-child bonding time and enriching that special bond. Young children will love my books, but parents will love them equally too!
I live with my amazing daughter and gorgeous Yorkshire Terrier in Brisbane. My daughter was born in 2015 through the magic of IVF and she is the light of my life. I absolutely adore her and I am so lucky to be her mummy!
I absolutely love all things Disney and cannot wait to introduce my daughter to all of the wonderful films! I love the beach and am lucky enough to be able to go most days. I live in an absolutely beautiful corner of the world! I also love Canada and would love to live in a log cabin beside a lake!
