Author Belinda Landsberry has been writing and illustrating children’s picture books for a number of years, though Anzac Ted is her first book to be published.
Belinda’s passion for writing and illustrating was obvious when she was seven years old and created How To Be A Nurse. While never published, this hilarious little book paved the way for Belinda to find her true north — children’s picture books. Belinda did, in fact, follow her own advice and became a student nurse, then primary school teacher, graphic designer and professional artist. But her love for children’s picture books continued to bring her back to where she truly feels she belongs. Belinda won the prestigious Kids’ Book Review Unpublished Picture Book Manuscript Award in 2013 and had three other manuscripts Highly Commended. Belinda also writes YA fiction and adult creative non-fiction. She lives in Sydney’s leafy north with her family.
