Michelle Klinger, Author

Michelle hails from Marvellous Melbourne, where her imagination was sparked by books with magical themes.

Currently residing in Sydney, Michelle lives with her husband, three kids, and their dogs. She loves to surround herself with unruly mutts with silly names. Michelle also likes frangipani trees, pelicans, and mashed potato with butter.

Michelle has worn many hats: writing for television, 3D animation, captioning, and most recently becoming an art therapist.

This would have been her tenth book had she not discovered Tetris.


Michelle is fortunate to be a Pyjama Angel and is a huge supporter of The Pyjama Foundation, a charity that supports children in foster care by empowering them with learning, life skills and confidence.
