Petronella McGovern

Petronella is fascinated by people – what makes us tick, how we view the world, and the lies we tell others and ourselves. She’s interested in the complexities of relationships and the dynamics in families.

Petronella grew up in a large family on a farm in New South Wales – building tree houses, chasing cows and avoiding snakes. Bitten by the travel bug, Petronella backpacked in Africa, Europe, America and Russia.   Book cover

She has co-written two non-fiction books – an Olympic memoir and a travelogue. After working in Canberra for a number of years, Petronella now lives in Sydney with her husband and children.

Petronella is a member of the Australian Society of Authors and Sisters in Crime Australia.
