Ezekiel Kwaymullina was born in Perth in 1983 and comes from the Palkyu people of Western Australia.
Sams Bush Journey was published by Little Hare in September 2009. Written by Sally Morgan and Ezekiel Kwaymullina and beautifully illustrated by Bronwyn Bancroft, it tells the story of Sam, who hates the bush. However, on visiting his Nanna, who loves the outdoors, he undertakes a journey during which he learns there is more to the bush than stinging insects and prickly vegetation.

These are the first two books in a fantasy series by Ezekiel, Sally Morgan, Ambelin and Blaze Kwaymullina which are action packed and full of earthy humour, perfect for 7 to 9 year olds. A stopwatch has sixty thin black lines, each marking off the seconds in a minute. But in Tom's stopwatch, they are also geateways to sixty different worlds!
Recently, Ezekiel has been working collaboratively with his mother, award winning and best selling author, Sally Morgan, his brother Blaze Kwaymullina and his sister Ambelin Kwaymullina, writing stories for children. Curly Saves Grandma's House was published in March 2009. This was the sequel to Curly and The Fent. Both stories are full of imagination, mischief and adventure, perfect for boys aged 7 to 9 and were published by Random House Australia.
See a review of Curly and the Fent at YARA online and in Reading Time, Vol 52, No 1. Praise for Curly Saves Grandma's House:
This is a great one for reluctant readers six and up because there's something for everyone: magic realism, adventure, action and humour. It also covers interesting territory when it comes to dealing with bullies and sticking up for what's right..
