Tania Cox

Tania was born in Australia in 1968, in a small northern Queensland town called Ayr.
In late 1997 her first picture book manuscript was accepted for publication by Working Title Press. It was called Baby. Working Title Press also decided to publish Little Bat. Andrew McLean, a very talented Australian artist agreed to illustrate it. Little Bat was first published in late 1999 followed closely by Baby in early 2000. And that’s how it all began.

In March 2000, Tania took part in the residential fellowship awarded by the May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust in Adelaide, where she visited schools to help encourage the love of reading and books. In 2004 her book Snap! Went Chester, illustrated by David Miller, was short-listed for the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book Awards. In 2013, her book With Nan illustrated by Karen Blair and published by Windy Hollow Books was short-listed and named Honour Book for the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book Awards. In 2011, I worked with The Little Big Book club to produce It's Bedtime by Phil Cummings, Katrina Germein , Susan Betts and Tania Cox. Illustrated by Katharine Lahn. This book was included in the Baby book packs to South Australian children.
