About the Author

Ali loves philosophy, she loves reading philosophy and she thinks everyone can enjoy philosophy...especially kids! Having stumbled across philosophy herself in her post graduate studies (MBA), Ali wondered why she hadn't been exposed to the subject earlier. She wished she was. She should have been. She would be better for it. Philosophy is a great subject ... AND it's really not that hard. So Ali set about introducing the great thinkers from the past to kids through exciting adventure stories. Ali lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband and their two daughters. Plato's Academy and the Eternal key is her first novel.
