About Lana

Lana Spasevski grew up in Sydney, Australia.

Lana is a children’s author who writes stories that tap into the curious world of children.

Her writing has been long-listed in the 2018 Children’s Book Council of Australia Charlotte Waring Barton Award as part of the Aspiring Writers Mentorship Award and in competitions such as Creative Kids Tales, Greenleaf Press and CYA. She is also a children’s book reviewer with the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Reading Time website and has been invited to present at the 2021 Sydney Writer’s Festival Family Day.

Lana’s debut picture book Max’s Dinosaur Feet illustrated by Penelope Pratley and published by New Frontier Publishing in 2019 was inspired by the beautiful chaos of life with a young family.

Forthcoming titles for 2021 include Upside-Down Friday, a picture book bursting with a busy animal kingdom with EK Books and illustrated by Nicky Johnston and a new junior fiction series with Affirm Press in 2022.

A trained lawyer and marketing manager, Lana now writes for children from her book-filled home where she lives with her husband, her two book butterflies and a rescue kitten called Marbles.
