The Playground Diaries. South Australian self-published author.

Meet the Author

Welcome to my page, it’s wonderful to have you here! I’m Yasmin and the face behind “The Playground Diaries". I’m a mum of 2, a junior primary teacher and children’s book author from South Australia.

Writing a children’s book was always a dream of mine but it wasn’t until my sister was expecting her first baby that I was inspired to write something for her as a keepsake. The support from family and friends to share that keepsake with the rest of the world is how I got here today.

You can find copies of my first book, “We’re getting a new baby” and my latest book, "Who likes the zoo?" available below. Thanks for your support and happy reading! X
