Who is Sally Murphy?
Great question! Sally Murphy, OAM, is an author, poet, academic and educator, with a passion for writing, reading and speaking. Her life’s goal is to write for, read with and speak to as many people as possible, and spread a passion for reading and writing to children and adults worldwide.
Sally is also a mum, granny, daughter and friend. While this all sounds like a lot of things to be at once, she still finds time to play with her kids and grandkids, read books, walk on the beach, swim and a million other things. She thrives on being busy.

She lectures at Curtin University in Perth, in the School of Education. Based in the South West of Western Australia, she loves to speak to audiences big and small, close to home or around the world. In 2022 Sally was awarded an OAM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, for her contributions to children’s literature and education.
