Laura Bloom

Laura Bloom is the author of nine bestselling and critically acclaimed adult and children’s novels, including the Dream Riders series, about a group of misfit kids from Mullumbimby who become horse-whisperers, and Mika and Max, about a non-verbal boy and teenage girl who accidentally embark on a hair-raising adventure together. Her novel Augustine's Lunch was recently re-published as a 'work of cultural significance,' and described as 'an utterly charming book containing equal measure of poignancy and optimism’ –  which is a pretty good description of her kids’ books in general.
