Writers Workshops

Author – Steve ColemaN

Steve’s love of words emerged from his bush upbringing in the fifties on Magnetic Island. This meant no electricity, no reticulated water; no telephone or television. Beyond the outside playground of rocks, beaches, creeks and trees, indoor games and books were pretty much all there was. Words and writing have continued in Steve’s professional life.

He is co-founder of an education and personal development company, CDN Pty. Ltd., and has published a collection of children’s books including, “The Bee’s Knees”, “The Ant’s Pants”, “Naree the Fire Lady”, “Jodi and the Turtle”, ”The Cat’s Whisker”, ”Pig and ‘Roo go to Kathmandu” and ”Rodney the Unicorn Fish Who Lost His Way”.

Steve is founder of Green Tale Publishing and, in 2021, with his wife and business partner Heather, co-founded The Townsville Tea Company. Steve currently enjoys a bush lifestyle at Alligator Creek in North Queensland.
