Here's what you say about us...

Libby Hathorn was born in New South Wales, Australia, and grew up in Sydney. She has published many works of fiction for both adults and children, including the Kate Greenaway Medal-winning picture book, Way Home. She has won many awards during her distinguished writing career and in 1992 was awarded the inaugural New South Wales Children's Award for her services to children's literature. Thunderwith was her first novel for young adults and has been translated into several languages as well as receiving awards and glowing reviews both in Australia and overseas. Thunderwith was directly inspired by Libby's family holidays in the Wallingat rainforest: 'One night there was a huge storm and when I looked out of the window, this big black dog ran across the clearing, a very proud and wonderful-looking animal. Afterwards, when I climbed back into the bunk where I had been sleeping, there seemed to be this chanting thing going on between the thunder and the rain on the roof 'Thunderwith, Thunderwith.' By morning, I had a story.'

Viewpoint 6

Beats your average 'adult' novel for sensuous detail, drama and a good gripping narrative
The Melbourne Age

A good racy story...The fantasy is terrifyingly possible, the narrative never loses momentum and the complexity of human relationships is never glossed over
