Samantha Turnbull is the author of The Anti-Princess Club series (Allen & Unwin, 2015).
She specialises in stories that feature strong girls (but that doesn’t mean that boys can’t read them). No princesses. No damsels in distress. No fairies.
Sam’s ‘mama blog‘ is where you’ll find her writing about her quest to convince her six-year-old daughter and four-year-old son that girls and boys can like the same stuff, most princesses are kind of boring, and self-worth should have nothing to do with what you see in the mirror.
It’s also where you’ll find her musing about life in general in the beautiful Byron Bay (Australia’s most easterly town).
Sam is also a slam poet, and you can see her in action here.
