Hi there! We're Ali and Michelle. Co-authors, founders of Books on the Rail, professional Book Ninjas and best friends since primary school (you should see our awkward teenage photos)!

In 2017, we signed a two-book deal with Simon & Schuster.  The Book Ninja launched in Australia, New Zealand and the UK in June 2018, and has since been published in over 10 countries. Our second book, While You Were Reading was published in Australia, New Zealand and the UK in July 2019. It is soon to be published in Germany and Italy.

We're both Melbourne-based. Ali is the Creative Director and co-founder of Hedgehog Agency and Michelle is a primary school teacher at Camberwell Girls Grammar School.
