Jaclyn Moriarty is the prize-winning, bestselling author of novels for young adults (and sometimes for slightly older adults). A former media and entertainment lawyer, Jaclyn’s books include the Ashbury-Brookfield series and the Colours of Madeleine trilogy. The first two books in that trilogy were both awarded the NSW Premier’s Literary Award and the Queensland Literary Award. A Tangle of Gold, her most recent book, concludes the trilogy. Jaclyn grew up in Sydney, lived in the US, the UK and Canada, and now lives in Sydney again.
