About the author

Lili Wilkinson remembers the day in Beijing when she learned to read ‘in her head’. She was six and has been immersed in the world of books since. It’s an obsession she shares with her mother, Carole Wilkinson (the China trip was the germ that sprouted the award-winning Dragonkeeper). Lili’s first book, Joan of Arc: The Story of Jehanne Darc, combines her interests in fiction, history and research. Lili lives in inner-city Melbourne, and loves reading, movies, shoes, the work of Jim Henson and Japanese food
