From age nine, Josie shelved homemade books in the school library. She received her first rejection letter from Golden Books at age thirteen.

Decades later, Josie has fifteen published books on those shelves, including Wogaluccis,Chickenpox Yuck, Pop Starlets, Snot Funny,The Bubble, CBC shortlisted Little Penguin and more.

Josie is able to cater to class requirements with an author talk, workshop or masterclass.

Subjects can also be applied to the curriculum. For example, she can focus on penguins, Australian history, multi-culturism, and differing writing genres and topics such as planning, ideas, research, humour, picture books, chapter books, fiction, non-fiction and YA.
