Mischa Claire Parkee is an avid reader who is particularly passionate about Gothic, Victorian, and Young Adult literature. However, John Keats, the English Romantic poet, is by far her greatest literary crush.
Mischa has worked in her local bookshop since the age of fourteen, which has invigorated her book hoarding tendencies. She has previously interned in the rights department at Allen & Unwin, and in the marketing and production departments at the 2016 Sydney Writers’ Festival.
Having studied English Literature and Creative Writing at Macquarie University, and currently studying a Masters of Primary Teaching at the University of Sydney, Mischa aims to inspire children to love reading as much as she does, and dreams of one day being a published novelist.
