About Elaine Macdonald

I started writing as a television scriptwriter in 1992 for a children’s edutainment show in South Africa. Shortly afterwards I was invited by MacMillan Education to be one of the authors of the ‘Readers are leaders’ series for which I wrote 11 books, including 2 anthologies of stories. This was followed by a contract with Penguin Random House for a series of 5 rhyming stories based on the Big 5 in Africa. 

Currently I am publishing stories under the name of Elaine Macdonald Books in the UK.

Genre: Children picture books – rhyming stories
