I'm Shiree, a Kiwi mum of two boys, freelance journalist, writer and illustrator of my first children's book. I have another on the way - a book that is, not a kid hehee - and you can see its progress in my blog.

My family were the inspiration for The Hunt for Polar One, so it has a whole lot of heart in it. I wanted to write a fun book, incorporating things and characters my kids loved so much - all wrapped up in a little bit of magic and rhyme. I really hope your kids love it too!
