Neridah McMullin

Neridah McMullinNeridah is a country girl living in the city. She’s never forgotten where she came from and claims she still thinks ‘country’. Her love of nature is strongly reflected in her writing and her work is emotive and sometimes humorous.

An award winning writer in the Banjo Paterson Writing Awards in 2008 and a winner of the Henry Lawson Poetry Prize in 2009, Neridah is passionate about culturally significant stories. Some are stories are little known, some are long forgotten.

Neridah first children’s picture book ‘Ponkidoodle’ with Little Steps at New Frontier was launched in November 2009

‘Kick it to me!’ was released in 2012 and is about the origins of Australian Rules Football and the indigenous influence of Marn-Grook. It’s told through the eyes of a young Tom Wills and how he learned to play Marn-Grook with the children of the local Djab Wurrung tribe near where he lived at Moyston.

When Neridah isn’t writing, she’s kept busy with her inquisitive eight year old. She’s a self confessed football tragic, going to the footy with her family every weekend to watch her beloved footy team, the Collingwood Football Club.
