Samantha Wheeler narrowly escapes a terrifying attack by a cassowary to bring to you her experiences of writing stories with wild Australian animals. Close encounters with both feathered and furry friends have led to inspiring stories that reveal animals’ inner lives and encourage the budding environmentalist in us all.
