Jacinta Dimase Literary Agent Melbourne

Lyn White

Lyn White has been a passionate primary school teacher-librarian for more than twenty years. During this time she has immersed students in a rich, inviting literary environment where they have every opportunity to develop a life-long love of literature.

In 2009 Lyn began to consider a move into children’s publishing where the two passions and areas of her professional expertise could find a new expression, and the idea of creating a fiction series of engaging stories of true events in troubled lands with insight into culture, conflict and identity through one child’s eyes was born.

Lyn accepted a contract from Allen & Unwin to be the series editor and creator of ‘Through My Eyes’, a six-book series that invites young readers into the fragile lives of children living in contemporary conflict.
