Dr Stephanie Owen Reeder is the author of two books for adults and seven books for children, three of which she also illustrated. Her books include the historical novel Lost! A True Tale from the Bush (Shortlisted and Notable Book, CBCA Book of the Year Awards 2010) and the picture book I’ve Got a Feeling! (IBBY Outstanding Book for Young People with Disabilities 2011).
Stephanie is also an award-winning book reviewer and experienced editor. She has taught at both secondary and tertiary levels, and has given talks at primary and secondary schools, libraries and conferences.
Stephanie is interested in exploring with her audiences the stories behind her books, how a picture can launch a thousand words, finding your illustrative voice, the pitfalls and pleasures of writing creative non-fiction, and the role of the editor in the creative process.

In Memory of Rob Leonard, Our Founder

It is with great sadness that the Board of Directors, staff, and myself from the Children’s Charity Network must inform you of the passing of our founder, Mr Rob Leonard, following a 14-month battle with Cancer. We pass our condolences to Rob’s friends and family at this terrible time.

Rob was a wonderful, caring man with a passion for service and charity. His vision to influence young Australians through literacy 25 years ago has impacted thousands, who will all be saddened by this news. In honour of Rob, I look forward to growing his vision and continuing to advocate for the value of literacy and arts.

Please take a moment to reflect upon Rob’s impact on you, and remember his uncompromising belief in the power of Art and Writing.

Rob, you will be truly missed but never far away from our thoughts. 

May Rob’s memory be a blessing.
