Kelly Hibbert is the author of Sebastian and the Special Stack of Stories, published by HarperCollins in 2018. Her first picture book, Fancy Pants, was published by the Little Big Book Club in 2016 and distributed to 42000 preschool children across the state and also gained a place on the long-list for the Speech Pathology Book of the Year awards. She is the coordinator for SCBWI SA and lives with her husband and two boys in Aberfoyle Park. Kelly divides her time between teaching and writing, sometimes combining the two. In every spare moment, she enjoys exploring the foothills with her family, often speaking in rhyme even if someone asks her to stop.
