Welcome to my online portfolio and blog – I’m Kelly Theobald, a freelance journalist and children’s author who also runs a small communications business specialising in outback tourism and industry.
I’m based in Birdsville, a small community on the edge of the Simpson Desert in far south west Queensland. I’m passionate about Birdsville, the resilient and resourceful people who live here and promoting outback tourism.
My first children’s book, Onslo, is the (almost true) story of a little, blue Volkswagen Beetle who crosses the Simpson Desert with the help of some friendly desert animals. It’s available online from Vivid Publishing and various outlets Australia-wide.
