Dimity Powell

Children's Author

Dimity Powell loves filling every spare moment with words. She is the Managing Editor for Kids' Book Review and writes and reviews exclusively for children with over 28 published stories. If kids’ stories were ice cream, picture books would be her favourite flavour. She’s even churned out a few of her own including The Fix-It Man, (2017), At the End of Holyrood Lane, (2018) - SCBWI Crystal Kite 2019 Australia NZ Award winner, Pippa, (2019) and Oswald, (2021) with more to come.

She is an accredited Write Like An Author facilitator and Books in Homes Australia Volunteer Role Model, the Roving Reporter Coordinator for SCBWI Australia East NZ conferences and is an experienced presenter, panel host and moderator at writing festivals and conferences both in Australia and overseas who enjoys sharing her love of story in front of crowds of very small and tall people. It says on her website, www.dimitypowell.com, so it must be true.

Dimity lives around the corner from Bat Man on the Gold Coast although they rarely hang out.  Such are the lives of authors and superheroes.
