Gretel Killeen started writing comedy by accident when she stood up to perform a very serious poem and everybody laughed. From here she moved to writing and performing comedy in a variety of theatres and clubs across her home country, Australia, and for a number of major radio stations. Gretel's comedy writing then led to television and in 2001 Gretel hosted Australia's Big Brother - a phenomenal success. Gretel has published a number of best-selling books that will split your sides and make your head explode. After you read them, you'll never be the same again . . . She lives in Sydney's famous Bondi with her two children, Zeke and Eppie, the stars of the My Sister books.
