Born in Perth, Western Australia, in 2009, Jaden Exeter loves Minecraft, reading, basketball and hanging out with his friends. When his little sister Mia started reciting the words of a picture book he wrote at school, he and his mum Kelly knew he was on to something special. Clanky is Jaden’s creation and The Very Bad, Hilariously Awful Life of Clanky is his first picture book.
Born in 1977 in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Kelly Exeter moved to Perth, Western Australia when she was 9 and has lived there ever since. An avid reader and writer from an early age, she is the author of four personal development books for adults. It’s been a lifelong dream to create a children’s picture book and she’s thoroughly enjoyed co-authoring The Very Bad, Hilariously Awful Life of Clanky with her son, Jaden.
