Linda Dawley, born and raised in Canada, married a Kiwi and moved to New Zealand, via Australia. In New Zealand, they continued the trend of shifting house at least once a year and Linda decided she needed a profession that could shift along with her.
She turned to a long-held desire to write and studied ‘Applied Writing’ with Northland Polytechnic. New Zealand’s Learning Media School Journal, and the Australian School Magazine, are home to her first children’s short stories. The Tooth Fairy’s Mistake is her debut children’s novel, and her second novel, Wee Mac, was released in 2014. She is completing work on the next two novels in the Tooth Fairy series.
