Francesca Riley is a New Zealander, living and working in New Zealand’s North Island. The stunning beaches of this beautiful country have found their way into Bannimor.
Immersed is her first young adult series. She was recipient of an NZSA Mentorship, working on an early manuscript of this story in 2014. Previously published is Treasure from the Sea, a picture book for the Ready to Read series.
When she isn’t writing, she is painting or reading. Her favourite books are old-fashioned murder mysteries, or YA magical realism novels where magic, bravery and passion exist in the world we think we know.
