Matilda Woods



Australian author, Matilda Woods, lives in the Southern Tablelands with her three dogs. Her debut novel THE BOY, THE BIRD AND THE COFFIN MAKER has enchanted everybody who has read it.  It’s the charming, eccentric, heart-warming tale of a friendship between a lonely old coffin maker whose family is gone and a little boy in need of safe harbour.  Interest in the book was so strong that foreign rights had been sold in 10 territories – Australia, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Sweden, Thailand, the Netherlands and the USA – before it was first published in the UK.

Matilda is a qualified social worker working with children in out-of-home care.
