Carole Wilkinson

Carole Wilkinson
Carole Wilkinson is the award-winning author of the best-selling Dragonkeeper Trilogy, which has been published in 14 countries.
Dragon Moon, the third book in the trilogy, and her edited version of Ned Kelly’s Jerilderie Letter (illustrated by Dean Jones) were both short-listed for the 2008 CBCA Book of the Year Awards.

Publication last year of the sumptuous Dragon Companion: An Enyclopedia (CBCA notable book) is the celebration of Carole’s passion for dragons. Carole’s latest book is non-fiction and is about Hatshepsut, the notorious ‘lost’ Egyptian female Pharaoh.

Carole lives in Melbourne with her husband John and dog Rita.

Carole Wilkinson and Tim Pegler talk about how Ned Kelly has been interpreted in fact and fiction
