Author Bio


Vanessa Parsons


Vanessa has worn many different hats in her life: primary school teacher, life coach, choc top ice cream factory owner (a bit like Willy Wonka), mother of three children, and owner of various pets (including a wombat). These rich and varied life experiences provide the inspiration Vanessa loves to turn in to children’s picture story books that both entertain and encourage conversation. Her first two picture story books are Mighty Marvin Mouse and The Rainbow Connection.
