Writer in residence: Megan White
Megan grew up in the central west of NSW, Australia with her family and spending most of their time between the sheep property and small country town home. Books like Rangers Apprentice and Eragon fed a love that grew into love of stories in all their forms; from print books and art to film. Megan began writing at about the age of sixteen, secreted in her boarding school room and never stopped. Behind every blank stare and through every lecture or long car ride Megan was conjuring characters and scenes in her head.
Megan went on to study and work as a Physiotherapist in both Australia and the UK, spending spare moments writing and travelling.
Megan's ongoing fascination with human anatomy and physiology has inspired many a graphite drawing and fuelled the idea behind the Anatomy of Songs. The story grew from the notion that knowledge like this can be used to hurt or heal and that the human body is both robust and fragile at the same time.
