About me – Zoë Disher
Hello! I am a freelance writer and poet living in Newcastle. I have a background in science and worked in research following the completion of my biology degree. I am mostly interested in the animals with no bones to speak of – the creepy crawlies and slippery slimies. Since having children I have worked in a communications role within the Natural Resource Management sector.
I had my first poem published at when I was 10 in The Canberra Times. It was about an alien. Since then I have continued to write for children and have had short stories and poems published in The School Magazine and online through the Kids’ Book Review website.
