Many of Felicity Pulman's novels reflect her love of history and her fascination with the unknown. Australian novels include Ghost Boy, set partly at the Quarantine Station in Sydney during the smallpox epidemic in 1881, with a 'Ghost Boy' tour at the QS for students studying the novel.
A Ring Through Time for older readers gives an insight into the brutal repression of convicts during the Second Penal Settlement on Norfolk Island. The Janna Chronicles is a medieval crime series for teenagers set in 1141.
Felicity has many years experience talking to primary and high school students about researching and writing her novels (with powerpoint) and conducting creative writing workshops in a variety of genres, including fantasy, crime, historical fiction, and short stories.
