I write fiction and non-fiction, usually for school-aged readers but not always. I can write in Indonesian but I’m better at English.

My first novel, Tiger Stone, is available from booktopia.com or you can order it at your local book shop. If you would like to order a copy directly please email info@derynmansell.com – I’ll even sign it for you. The cost is AU$14 plus postage but if you are ordering in Australia you get free postage until I run out of the prepaid postbags that I had forgotten I had and rediscovered in a recent flurry of decluttering.

Cover image of Tiger StoneTiger Stone is a mystery adventure story set in fourteenth century Java. It is usually classified as ‘middle fiction’ – somewhere between ‘children’s fiction’ and ‘YA’ – but Tiger Stone is suitable for anyone who can read or who likes being read to (including adults). You will find reviews, a sample chapter, teacher resources and more information on the Tiger Stone website.
