About The Author

Gary Lonesborough.png

I’m an Australian storyteller and author.

I practice the traditional art of spoken story and write non fiction books for children.

For me, the art of storytelling is connected to the book, like blossom to fruit.

I live in the traditional lands of the Kulin Nation.

My home is in country that has long been mapped by story.
