Frances Watts About Frances

I was born in Lausanne, Switzerland, and moved to Australia when I was very young. After studying literature at university, I spent nearly ten years working with some of Australia’s most talented children’s authors and illustrators as an editor before that light bulb moment that became my first book, Kisses for Daddy, beautifully illustrated by David Legge.

I have now written more than 25 books for children and young adults, several of which have won and been shortlisted for literary and children’s choice awards. My books have been translated into more than 20 languages.
