Lynette Noni is the author of the five-part young adult fantasy series, The Medoran Chronicles, described as a combination of Harry Potter, Narnia, and X-Men. Her first book, Akarnae, was released in 2015, with the second, Raelia, in April 2016, and the third, Draekora, coming out soon. A regular panelist at national and local events, Lynette has featured at Sydney Writers' Festival, Emerging Writers' Festival (as part of the National Writers' Conference), Supanova Pop Culture Exhibition, GenreCon, the National Young Writers' Festival, Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival, Voices on the Coast, and the Australian National Speculative Fiction Convention.
Lynette’s engaging world building and character development workshops make her a sought after presenter for schools, both local and interstate, and for National Youth Week activities. She presented this year’s inter-school Readers’ Cup in June for the Sunshine Coast region (on behalf of the Children’s Book Council of Australia) and has been invited back to do so again for the August competition. Lynette was one of the YA authors featured on the inaugural ABC Radio #OzYA broadcast earlier this year. She is also an active blogger at http://www.lynettenoni.com/ and has an impressive and rapidly growing international following.
