My name is Beverley McWilliams, and I am a children's writer based in South Australia. I love to write across the genres and have a passion for stories based on non-fiction. My debut picture book ‘Born to Fly’ (illustrated by Timothy Ide) was published by MidnightSun in 2019 and received a Notable Commendation from The Children’s Book Council of Australia (Eve Pownall Award for Information Books). My second book, 'The Reindeer and the Submarine' will be released in November 2022 with Pantera Press, and I have three books contracted for 2023/4. My non-fiction writing has been published online and in magazines, and I am a regular contributor to The School Magazine, Australia’s longest-running literary publication for children.
I am a member of The Australian Society of Authors (ASA). I am also the events coordinator and blogger for The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators SA branch (SCBWI).
