Supported by Arts SA
Rosanne Hawke is the author of 14 books for young people. She was an aid worker in Pakistan for seven years and many of her works reflect the culture of that land. During her residency, Hawke travelled extensively through the mountainous northern region of Pakistan to gain the cultural knowledge and insight necessary for completing a novel for young adults. This opportunity resulted in the drafting of two novels and inspiration for a further five projects including a picture book and novel based on Afghani and Pakistani folktales.
