About the Author

Michelle Wanasundera
“It’s so easy to forget the magic in the everyday busyness of life.”

Michelle Wanasundera was born in Melbourne and now lives in the beautiful Blue Mountains with her husband and daughter and two very sweet finches. She has a love of nature and has studied psychology, philosophy and children’s meditation – all of which naturally infuses her stories.

Michelle Wanasundera has been writing since she was small – letters, diaries and poems. It was only after writing stories for her daughter, Amali, that a real love for writing children’s stories begun. Amali wanted them in a ‘proper book’ to put on her bookshelf, and that’s just what she got in the form of ‘Bubbles and Puddles’ of which she is the star.

Michelle hopes that these stories bring joy and comfort to your children, as they have Amali.

The companion to ‘Bubbles and Puddles’ is ‘Hugs and Bugs’.
