Belinda Murrell is a bestselling, internationally published children’s author with a history of writing in her family that spans over 200 years. Belinda has written more than 30 books including The Sun Sword trilogy, 13 books in the popular Lulu Bell series and her award-winning timeslip novels.  Her latest series is called Pippa’s Island about a group of best friends who start a secret club, which meets after school in a tower on top of a boatshed. 


Belinda thinks she has the best job in the world because it brings together three of her greatest loves – writing, reading and travelling the world with her family! 

And when she’s not writing books (or escaping on wonderful travel holidays with her family) she’s often out talking to kids at schools, festivals and literary events around Australia.
