Romi Sharp is a freelance and children’s story writer, and avid reader, particularly in the picture book arena. Being qualified as an Early Childhood and Primary Teacher, and having additional roles in Reading Intervention, ESL, Art and graphic design, means she is particularly fond of language, playing with words, artistic endeavours, and how all these marry together.
She has written tons of reviews and articles, which have appeared in several literary publications. These include Just Write For Kids Australia, Boomerang Books, CBCA’s Reading Time Online, Junior Books + Publishing, Kids’ Book Review, Buzz Words Magazine, Enthralled Magazine and Creative Kids Tales. She ran a small photography and album business with her husband pre-kids, and more recently completed web-based design work for Greenleaf Press.
Romi is also the founder and director of Just Write For Kids; the Australian support group and thriving website for authors and illustrators and all things kidlit. Her blog tour initiative, Books On Tour, is highly recommended by its contributors. The service helps authors gain exposure to their brand and their newest book release through fun and engaging promotional content.
Romi lives in Melbourne with her husband and two young daughters, who are definitely book lovers, and desperately dog lovers.
My Little Story Corner developed out of a complete obsession with and love of picture books!
