Di Morrissey

Di Morrissey is one of the most successful adult authors Australia has ever produced. Known as “Gigi” to her grandchildren – Sonoma, Everton, Bodhi and Ula – Di believes it was the ‘First Stories’ she was read by her mother and then was able to read for herself, that inspired her love of books and writing. The love and sound of language, a rich imagination, seeing the world in a magical way, a place of your own to escape to, a constant companion, is what Di believes books give us. So the first stories we hear and read, are the ones that stay with us, enrich us and are the ones we want to share and pass on. Di was married to an American diplomat, Peter Morrissey, and lived and worked in many countries. Di trained as a journalist and has worked in newspapers, magazines, in radio, theatre, advertising, television and film. Her first novel was published in 1991 and she has now written 23 bestselling books. Her next novel, The Road Back, will be published by Pan Macmillan in November 2014. Di was born in Wingham, NSW and grew up at Pittwater and the Northern Beaches of Sydney. She has now returned to the Manning Valley of NSW where she lives with her partner, Boris Janjic. Di is thrilled to be adding another string to her bow with the publication of the stories she’s only ever told her grandchildren.
