Hi, I’m Megan
Megan Daley is a multiple award-winning teacher librarian, author,
speaker, podcaster, and literary judge, who loves wandering literature festivals.
Megan’s best subjects at high school were English and Agriculture and she still
adores reading, writing, small-scale farming, growing green things, chickens
and bees. Megan lives in humid Brisbane where she waits for it to be cool
enough to split her hives and lives with her partner, a commercial beekeeper,
and their four children. Click to read her official bio.

I pay my respects to the Traditional Owners of this land, the Jagera and Turrbul people, and their elders past, present and future, who are the traditional custodians of the land on which I tell stories and work. I recognise their continuing cultural and spiritual connection to this land and that it has always been a place of storytelling and learning.
Always was. Always will be.
