Thalia can't remember a time when she wasn't telling stories - trying to make her Mum cry, her Dad laugh, and also make sense of the world. She has published multiple books in the popular Go Girl series for girls aged seven to ten, as well as a non-fiction children's book with Allen + Unwin called It's True! Sleep Makes You Smarter (which is true, in case you're wondering). When she was sixteen, Thalia was the youngest member of a professional cheerleading squad. Did she have a crush on one of the basketballers? No. But she did get a great view of their legs.
