The Pearl-Shell Diver : A Story of Adventure from the Torres Strait
Kay began her writing career with feature articles for newspapers and lifestyle magazines before moving into writing educational material for children. Her works include fiction and non-fiction books, short comprehension texts and school magazine articles and stories. Many of her books feature animals and the environment. She feels lucky to have patted a tiger, ridden an elephant in the jungle, played games with gibbons and been close to a lynx, a wolf, and bears in the wild, but says the komodo dragon is the most intriguing animal she has writtten about. Kay grew up in Sydney and moved with her husband and children to remote areas of Tasmania and Western Australia before settling in far north Queensland, where two spectacular environments meet - the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.
