Ebony-Jane Carroll was born in 1984 and lives in Melbourne Australia. ‘EGGS’ is her first children’s picture story book and was launched in May 2014.
Writing has been a creative hobby and therapeutic outlet of hers since childhood and consisted of penning short stories, poetry, lyrics and film script. In 2007 she entered two scripts into the annual short film competition MAFMAD (Make a Film. Make a Difference) and both were shortlisted in the top eight. She went on to win with her piece entitled ‘Pose’ and was fortunate enough to be given the artistic freedom to produce it herself and see it released in cinemas across Victoria.
Sometime after this she began working with young children as a kindergarten teacher, primary school literacy presenter and university academic. Ebony-Jane has both undergrad and postgrad qualifications in education and is passionate about inspiring young children to fall in love with literature. She is currently working on her next project!
