Tegan is an 18 year old, high school graduate residing in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. She completed year 12 at Eumemmerring College in 2003 and wrote Almagest as a part of her VCE folio for Art. She came out of school with the Art Award and Certificate II in Arts - Interactive Multimedia.
Ironically, Tegan received her contract with Sid Harta publishers the exact week that her application for the Berwick TAFE ‘Professional Writing and Editing’ course was rejected.
Currently, Tegan works part time for the Casey Cardinia Library Corporation and spends the other half of her time doing a mix of writing, art, study and chatting to friends online - mostly all at once. Tegan shares her love for Science Fiction with her Dad and younger brother and also has an avid interest in Astronomy, Egyptology and the Bible. Every so often she also loves to do a spot of reading, and her all time favourite authors include James Gurney, Alison Goodman and Lynda Robinson. Tegan enjoys Fan Fiction writing and online Role Play writing and owns her own Private Role Play website called Cadol- an offshoot of Almagest and a fan fiction of her own book!
