Following a law degree and qualifying as a chartered accountant, Beverley McWilliams worked in corporate tax before running her own consultancy business. But she decided life was too short for facts and figures, and she ditched the rat race to pursue her dream of becoming a writer. Now Beverley happily spends her days surrounded by books: writing, reading, pondering and eating way too much chocolate.
Beverley publishes work in children’s magazines and particularly enjoys writing historical non-fiction. Beverley’s debut picture book Born to Fly was published by MidnightSun mid-2019.
Beverley lives in Adelaide with her husband, four children and a menagerie of pets, who provide endless inspiration.
