BIO: Tania writes “In November 2008, I self-published my first children’s picture book – Riley and the Sleeping Dragon, which will be made into a travelogue series for 0-8 year olds. Beijing Tai Tai – a memoir-style collection of blogs, columns and journal entries, was self-published in January 2009. And there are many more words in me yet.

I am Australian wife and mother of two gorgeous children – Ella and Riley. We lived in Beijing, China for almost four years and currently live in Canberra, Australia. After that? Who knows.

I love Japanese sweets, French bubbles and Australian air. Mangoes and wasabi are good, too. I love to travel, learn languages, take photographs, craft, design, decorate and wrap presents.

My greatest joys – cuddles from my kids, tea with the girls, the eyes of my husband, seeing somewhere new, creating something new, and… writing.”
