Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, of French parents, Sophie Masson came to Australia at the age of five. All her childhood, the family moved back and forth between Australia and France, so Sophie grew up between worlds, and between languages. She has published more than 50 novels in Australia and internationally, mostly for young adults and children, but also for adults, including the internationally- selling Forest of Dreams. Her books have been shortlisted for many awards; The Hunt for Ned Kelly won a New South Wales Premier's Award, and The Hand of Glory an Aurealis. Sophie is married with three grown-up children. She lives in country New South Wales with her husband David Leach.
