Jayne Lyons has worked as a geologist/geophysicist for fifteen years. One day in 2004, while living in Aberdeen, Scotland, she became very bored and applied for a job in Perth, Western Australia. Four months later she was there, and she has been living in Australia ever since. Jayne writes every day: on the bus, at lunchtime, in the evening and at weekends. She likes writing funny, irreverent stories for children such as 100% Wolf and 100% Hero, and especially having a very free hand with language. There is nothing she likes more than inventing new words. Jayne is married and a full-time working mother, with one ten-year-old daughter.
