Author Justine Flynn lives in Sydney’s inner west with her two dogs, three goldfish, four children and her husband. Justine grew up in a large family and was always known for daydreaming. She lived near the beach, and until the age of eight she was convinced she was part-mermaid. As a kid, Justine loved stories, reading and role play. As a grown-up, Justine still loves stories and works to bring ideas and characters to life as a producer, director and writer in film and TV. Justine has always wanted to write children’s books and in 2016 published her first book, Miss Mae’s Saturday (Random House Australia), inspired by imaginary adventures with her own children.
