Guest Announcement - ISOBELLE CARMODY

Welcoming the award winning author Isobelle Carmody to the inCONceivable lineup! Isobelle Carmody is a well known Australian author who has written many novels and short stories for children and adults. She began the first of her highly acclaimed Obernewtyn Chronicles while she was still at high school and worked on it while completing a Bachelor of Arts and then a journalism cadetship. Obernewtyn was accepted by the first publisher she sent it to and went on to be shortlisted in the "Older Readers" section of the CBC Book of the Year Award. The series and her short stories have established her at the forefront of fantasy writing in Australia and many of her works have been published overseas.

Isobelle recently completed her PhD at the University of Queensland and is currently working on editing a new book for Allen and Unwin called Comes the Night, and the final book in The Kingdom of the Lost series, The Velvet City, which she also illustrated will come out with Penguin Random House next July.
