Nadine Bates - Hootenanny Books
Nadine Bates is the Creative Director at Hootenanny Books, a small, indie publishing company that focuses on creating quality children’s content.
Previously a classroom English teacher, published children’s author and freelance writer/editor, Nadine founded Hootenanny Books (after the birth of her two sons) in order to devote her time to her true passions- children’s art and literature. Nadine has a love of interactive and digital content for kids and is currently producing both traditional and ebook/app formats of Hootenanny’s work. Through the magic of modern technology, she manages to balance the demands of the publishing world and her boisterous young family from her hilltop home in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
She’s also a firm lover of coffee, chocolate and trashy vampire fiction.
Nadine will see Picture books and illustration portfolio’s during her assessments at CYA Conference 2011.
