Tahlia Newland, author of the multi-award-winning Diamond Peak Series, writes heart-warming and inspiring magical realism and contemporary fantasy. When not reading, writing, reviewing, or mentoring authors, you may find her being an extremely casual high school teacher, making decorative masks or sitting on her veranda staring at the rain forest.
Before writing full time, Tahlia had over 20 years’ experience in scripting and performing in Visual Theatre and Theatre in Education. She lives in Australia with a husband, a teenage daughter, and a cheeky Burmese cat called George.
A champion of quality in the new age of accessible publishing, Tahlia's books have all earned the seal of excellence from Awesome Indies
