About the author

Fleur Ferris

Fleur Ferris spent the first seventeen years of her life growing up on a farm in Patchewollock, northwest Victoria. She then moved twenty times in twenty years.

During this time, Fleur sometimes saw the darker side to life while working for a number of years as a police officer and a paramedic.

She now lives a more settled lifestyle in Moama, southern New South Wales, with her husband and three children.

Fleur’s colourful and diverse background has given her a unique insight into today’s society and an endless pool of experiences to draw from. When she isn’t weaving this through her latest story, reading or spending time with her family, you will find her with friends, talking about art, books and travel.

Fleur’s first YA novel, Risk, won the Australian Family Therapists’ Award for Children’s Literature, the Sisters in Crime Davitt Awards for Best Young Adult Novel and Best Debut Book 2016, as well as a YABBA in 2017. She has also written Black, Wreck and Found for young adults. Nullaboo Hullabaloo and Seven Days are Fleur’s novels for young readers.

Praise for Wreck

This book took me on one heck of a rollercoaster ride, and my eyes were practically glued to the pages ... Fast-paced and full of twists, it’s impossible not to love [Fleur's] writing and become enthralled in the storyline ...MIND = BLOWN.


A believable and riveting mystery. The structure of the narrative, alternating between times and characters, maintains the suspense and intrigue. This suspense is built quickly and does not linger or decline. It continues to build as the narrative continues, making this a novel hard to put down. The characters are well written and the dialogue is strong ... Highly recommended for all teens, especially those who love a good mystery.


This book was really enjoyable, action-packed, and full of drama. Fleur Ferris does such a brilliant job of hooking the reader in and surprising them, and I cannot wait for her next thrilling book!


Fast paced, action packed and suspenseful, this would have to be the YA thriller of 2017!
