  • Author

Sue Bursztynski is a teacher-librarian and is skilled at talking to students. 

For many years, she wrote fiction and non-fiction for small-press science fiction magazines before she won the Mary Grant Bruce Award for children’s literature and realised that what she enjoyed most was writing for young people.

She has written ten books, one of which – Potions to Pulsars: Women Doing Science – was a Notable Book in the Children’s Book Council Awards. Another, Starwalkers: Explorers of the Unknown, was nominated for the NSW Premier’s History Award.

When not writing, Sue works in a school in Melbourne’s western suburbs. She enjoys reading, music, handcraft and old science fiction movies.

Her current books are Crime Time and Wolfborn.
