Diane Jackson Hill is a trained primary school teacher and now, an award winning author.
She lives by the sea in south-west Victoria and is passionate about discovering more about the ocean and the animals that live there.
Diane believes if our grandchildren can discover how INCREDIBLE their world is, they will look after it a lot better than we have.
She hopes her books will honour this belief.
