N. D. Picton is a children’s author who once accidentally left a winning lottery ticket in a pocket and let it go through the wash. 

Having had the childhood fantasy of living out in the bush, this was ruthlessly dashed when it became apparent that having no survival skills, a total inability to assemble anything and a fear of sharp knives, might prove slightly disadvantageous. The obvious next course of action was to take up a teaching career.

N. D. Picton’s hobbies include: walking alpacas, blending spinach, broccoli and kale drinks for breakfast, appearing in the background of TV news reports and playing the duduk.

Living in Queensland, Australia with one daughter and a spoilt dog called Daisy, ‘The Adventures of BB, Shlumbernerd and William’ is the first children’s book published by this author.
