Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Eleanor Mulder, and I’m a mummy and a
writer living near Perth, Western Australia.
Because life with my two daughters is a magical adventure, I’m inspired every day to write. Through my children’s eyes I see the world afresh, and here on my blog, I share our journey as we find magic in all we do.
Thanks to Kidzabuzz.com.au, we’re often out and about, trying out different Perth kids’ activities and blogging about our experience. I hope you find my posts for Kidzabuzz as magical as the time we have creating them.
When I’m alone, I continue my search for magic — in nature, in people, in places. In times of joy, in times of change, and even in times of fear; there’s always magic to be found.
I’m drawn to unexplained mysteries, unsolved cases and enigmas of the past. I like to imagine the stories behind the facts, where the truth is revealed but not as we might expect. I believe these long unsolved mysteries cannot always be explained with logic or by what we know, and for those willing to see it, magic lies in the answer.
I’m captivated by the past. The many layers of our history always lie beneath us, shaping how we live and affecting who we are today. I love learning about my local history, finding out what — and who — was here before me. And most importantly, I love the stories from those who lived in another time.
My first novel, which WILL be finished this year, is based in Perth, WA, during the 1950s and explores how today’s reality is fragile, constructed from layers of the past and from the stories existing within them. We learn things are not always as they seem and that magic is only one small step away from where we are. Read all about it here and sign up to my launch list here.
Also on my blog I share my writing progress, book research, and any new mysteries that interest me.
