About the Author

Cecelia Hopkins-Drewer grew up in the Barossa Valley, an area of South Australia predominantly settled by German immigrants. Cecelia remembers the struggle to learn to read – and reading was a slow process until one birthday, she sat down with her gift, and the mystery story was so exciting, she finished it in one session. She has wanted to write her own stories ever since!
