Jacqueline Harvey worked in schools for many years but has had a passion for storytelling since she was a child. 

She is the author of the popular Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose series, which have sold over one million copies in Australia alone. Her books have received numerous short-listings and awards while her picture book, The Sound of the Sea, was a CBCA Honour Book.

While she is not a twin, like Kensy and Max she does have excellent powers of observation and has always thought she’d make a great spy.
