Hi! Welcome to my website. I'm Barry Jonsberg, a writer of books for young adults and children. I live in hot, steamy, sweaty and beautiful Darwin in the Northern Territory where I occasionally teach and constantly write.
I hope you enjoy exploring this site and learning a little more about me and my books.
Where does the time go?
The last year has been quite amazing for Candice Phee [the hero of My LIfe As An Alphabet] and me! We WON the Children's Peace Prize. We WON the Gold Inky. We WON the Victorian Premier's Award for YA fiction. We were SHORTLISTED for the Adelaide Festival Award.
And it's coming out in Germany, France and America as well. Hurrah!...
Looking for an ideal birthday or Christmas present? Why not a signed copy of one of Barry's books?
Barry will be very happy to personally sign a copy [with whatever message you wish] and send it to you or straight to the recipient of your gift. We can even gift-wrap it for you.
There is no extra cost for these services – in other words, you simply pay the recommended retail price of the book, plus postage.
