Lynne Bartlett is the centre of Bushfire Press! It’s Lynne that answer your calls and emails, dispatches your parcels and helps you with advice and encouragement.

Lynne was born in England and migrated with her parents to Australia in the sixties. Her father Ken Woodward, was a passionate theatre lover and started one of the first non-professional theatre companies, Kenwood Theatre in Victoria and then moved to far north Queensland, producing works for both adults and children. He was awarded three OAMs for his contributions to theatre. Lynne worked with her father in all aspects of production and went on to gain an Associate Diploma – in Speech & drama – from Trinity College in the UK.

Working in primary schools in the eighties, Lynne began writing children’s musicals with Mark Leehy, Kevin O’Mara and Rob Fairbairn. By the end of the decade, Lynne, Mark and Kev began Bushfire Press and those early shows were first titles published by the company.

In between running the office, Lynne works in primary schools mentoring and team teaching with the performing arts teachers.

Lynne’s office is the hub of Bushfire Press and always has a great, positive vibe to it, with phones computers, deliveries arriving and departing and the occasional grandchildren to amuse.

Lynne and David Billings recently wrote a musical drama for Secondary Schools.
