Diane Jackson Hill is an award-winning author and a trained primary school teacher.
Living by the sea in south-west Victoria, Diane is passionate about discovering more about the ocean and animals living there.
Diane believes if they discover how INCREDIBLE their world is, our grandchildren may look after it much better than have we. She hopes her books will assist in this goal.
“Windcatcher” is a tale of migration, conservation and survival that begins with one small bird called Hope.
