Tim Harris is one of the most exciting new children’s authors in Australia. His first series of books, Exploding Endings (Harbour Publishing) has been highly-acclaimed, with the fourth book Screenshots & Laughing Gas due to be published in early 2017.

With generously-sized short stories, Tim Harris throws the reader into a world where it rains lemonade, dentists terrorise children, a whole school is put on detention at once and making a simple chocolate cake is one of life’s more dangerous tasks.

In 2016, Tim worked with WestWords and the Auburn Library to bring a six-week long writers’ workshop to authors aged 10-14. Drawing on his experience as a qualified teacher, Tim guided each of the students through the development of their own piece of work.
