We dream of writing enchanting stories...

Meet Shannan and Tayla Stedman - 27 and 25 year old sisters from Sydney, Australia. They are children's authors who are signed with Scholastic Australia. They adore (are obsessed with) their three dogs Mya, Harlow and Bambi, drink insane amounts of tea, inhale chocolate like its air and basically live on a pilates reformer.

"We wanted to create memorable and magical moments for children."



For six years, they owned and operated their children's entertainment company, HAPPILY EVER LAUGHTER. The Stedman Sisters are also professionally trained face painters and self proclaimed Disney lovers. 

Both with writing degrees from The University of Technology Sydney, they grew up reading enchanting stories and dreamt of writing their own. They enjoy creating unique and loveable characters that inspire kids to dream big, because where's the fun in dreaming small?

Stay Tuned


The first book in their junior fiction series with Scholastic will be released in 2021. Their debut picture book, HARLOW AND THE LOST LAUGHTER is available now
