Martine Murray was born in Melbourne, and now lives in Castlemaine. Her most recent novel, Molly and Pim and the Millions of Stars, was shortlisted for the 2016 CBCA Award for Younger Readers.
'Molly and Pim is wild, whimsical and wonderful. It makes you fall in love with the world and everyone in it.' -- Sally Rippin 'Here is a middle-grade novel that sees beauty and magic in the environment around us, and celebrates seeds of friendship which grow deep roots. I loved this charming and whimsical novel, and young readers will too!' Alpha Reader, on Molly and Pim and the Millions of Stars 'Warm and wise for middle-grade readers who appreciate just a hint of the fantastic.' Kirkus Reviews, on Molly and Pim and the Millions of Stars 'This is a story of an unlikely friendship, a common theme in children's books, but one that feels refreshing due to how nice these children are. Martine Murray captures sadness without wallowing in it...Joey and Marsh's story is both reassuring and encouraging for children aged eight and up.' Books + Publishing
