Hello, I'm Martha Grimstone, and I've inherited my father's gift for music. I can play notes that will bring sunshine, breezes and rain, and send clouds scudding across the sky. But I can't turn back a storm. If only I can convince Grandpa Grimstone that I can be trusted to leave the valley, I know just the place where I can learn more - but after my latest catastrophe there seems little hope of that. Perhaps Tillipilli and Ziphwort will help me...The Grimstones: Whirlwind is a gothic fairytale about a whirlwind that refuses to be stomped on, two feisty Angora rabbits, and a disaster of exponential proportions that could be woven into something magnificent.
Asphyxia is a circus performer turned puppeteer, and a writer. She is also deaf. Her name is unusual, but she is an unusual person! She has been a ballerina, a circus performer, a puppeteer, and a creator of her own theatrical productions, where she tells stories physically and with sign language. The Grimstones - Hatched and Mortimer Revealed have toured around Australia and overseas to great acclaim. The Grimstones books are based on these shows.
