ISOBELLE CARMODY: YA, FANTASY & CHILDREN’S LITERATURE

Isobelle Carmody spoke to The Garret about writing YA, fantasy and children's literature.

Isobelle Carmody is one of Australia's foremost authors of YA fiction and children's literature.

She began writing her best known work, The Obernewtyn Chronicles, while she was still in high school. The first book, Obernewtyn, was short-listed in the Older Readers section of the Children’s Book Council Book of the Year Award in 1988. The series was finished almost twenty years later with The Red Queen in 2015.
