Biography: Jessica Lim is an Australian journalist, photographer, and writer of funny, heartfelt kidlit. Her first job was a bit of a Becky Bloomwood affair, writing a humorous column as ‘Shopgirl’ to cover the local retail sector (a job she scored from an internship because she wore a different pair of shoes to work each day). After Shopgirl, Jessica and her shoes did a neat side-step into photography, starting a family portrait business, contributing fashion editorials to newspapers and magazines, and writing for fun – something, incidentally, that she would like to keep doing for a long time yet.

Jessica is currently at work on her first middle-grade novel, FRANKENPHONE, at her home in sunny Queensland, which she shares with her husband and three young daughters.
