Chrissie Keighery is the author of many successful books for children and young adults including her stories in the Go Girl! series.
The former high school English teacher lives down on the Great Ocean Road in
Fairhaven with her husband and three children. There is an amazingly beautiful
view of the coastline from the living area, so Chrissie tucks herself away in a room with shut out blinds to concentrate on her stories.
She finds that she needs a cocoon like this to dive deep inside her characters;
to bring to life the physical and emotional ups and downs of teen life.
Her teenage daughter has been a big part of the process, helping to build and
expand the cast of Outside In until the characters have become part of the family.
