Barbara Pyett

Barbara Pyett was born in Tasmania in 1946. Her first book, Lily’s Wish, reflected her own sadness of missing her family at Christmas, as she had her first two children in Europe. She returned to Tasmania in 1975 and had her third child. She became a special education/art teacher in Canberra in the 1980s. In 2000, she married her childhood friend, artist Christopher Pyett, who is her constant inspiration. They share nine grandchildren. Barbara’s writing includes her autobiography, poetry, short stories and children’s stories.
