Sherryl Clark has been writing poems and stories for children for over twenty years. Her verse novel, Farm Kid, won the NSW Premier’s Literary Award for Children’s Books in 2005 and Sixth Grade Style Queen (Not!) was an Honour book in the 2008 CBCA Awards. Sherryl worked in community writing for many years and since 1996 she has been teaching in the Diploma of Arts – Professional Writing and Editing at Victoria University TAFE. Tracey Binns Is Trouble is the first in a new series by Sherryl following the adventures of troublemaker Tracey Binns. It was inspired by Sherryl’s own daughter’s experience of being bored at school, and later being bullied for being too smart. The latest book in the series, Tracey Binns is Lost, tackles the topical issues of childhood obesity and healthy food in schools.
