Jo Rothwell

The joy of writing a children’s book is about riding a magic carpet with freedom of mind and spirit until the words dance onto a page and into the world of a child.


Jo Rothwell grew up in the Yarra Valley, Victoria. In 2004, the first Rothwell Publishing illustrated children’s book was released.

Jo has written and published 13 titles and sold over 100,000 books.  Jo writes her ‘Australian Adventure’ series highlighting specific Australian destinations and icons.  She was commissioned to write a children’s book for charity in 2012 and in more recent times she has written books creating awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder. All her books are on the Victorian Premiers Reading list.  Jo is currently working on another Australian Adventure story.
