Tania Ingram


Tania Ingram is an internationally published author of children’s picture books, novels and poetry.  She has a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and prior to becoming an author, worked as a child psychologist.

Her picture book, Dog on Log was written with phonetic awareness and prepositions in mind and has been used in university courses for early education teachers.  The rollicking Jinny & Cooper series books have been shortlisted in the Speech Pathology Book of the Year Awards and are a favourite amongst junior students. The Great Barbie Disaster, included in the Scholastic Aussie Mates series, was selected for the BIG W 2019 Free Books for Kids campaign. Her beloved picture book, Oma's Buttons was written from family experience and holds many secrets within its pages.

She has a new junior novel series and a mid-grade novel coming out with Scholastic Australia and a new picture book coming out with Wombat Books.

Tania also writes stories and poetry for The School Magazine and The Australian Children’s Poetry Website. She is a member of the Australian Society of Authors, the Children’s Book Council of Australia and the Society of Book Writers and Illustrators. Tania is a Premier’s Reading Challenge Ambassador and also enjoys giving interactive, fun and high energy presentations at schools and festivals to share her love of books and stories. 

When she is not writing, Tania likes to read and crochet toys. She is learning to play the ukulele and often plays for her chickens who seriously underestimate her talent.
