Deborah Abela (Australian)

Deborah Abela has always dreamed of being braver, which is probably why she writes books about spies, ghosts, soccer legends and characters who battle sea monsters and evil harbour lords. She is the author of the Max Remy Superspy and Jasper Zammit (Soccer Legend) series, The Remarkable Secret of Aurelie Bonhoffen, Grimsdon and Ghost Club. Deborah has won awards for her books but mostly hopes to be as brave as the characters inside.
