Deborah Abela

After finishing a teaching degree, Deb went to Africa where she was caught in a desert sandstorm, harassed by monkeys and thrown in jail twice! She’s written 25 books including Max Remy Superspy, Grimsdon, New City, Teresa A New Australian and The Most Marvellous Spelling Bee Mystery. Her first picture book is Wolfie, An Unlikely Hero. Deb has won awards for her books but mostly hopes to be as brave as her characters.
