About the Author:

Ali loves philosophy, she loves reading philosophy and she thinks everyone can enjoy philosophy...especially kids!

Having stumbled across philosophy herself in her post graduate studies (MBA), Ali wondered why she hadn't been exposed to the subject earlier. She wished she was. She should have been.  She would be better for it.  Philosophy is a great subject ... AND it's really not that hard. So Ali set about introducing the great thinkers from the past to kids through exciting adventure stories.

Ali lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband and their two daughters. Plato's Academy and the Eternal Key is her first novel.

Review:

"A quick overview of complex philosophical subjects, told in an approachable way." - Kirkus Reviews

"Philosophy can be difficult to comprehend but Gray has produced a time travel fantasy that makes Platonic theories a simple journey ... Middle school readers will be engrossed in the adventure as well as learning some important philosophic ideas.  This will be a welcome addition to the reading lists with its fast paced action." 
                                                 - Reading Time, Children's Book Council of Australia

"Young Readers will love this history-infused tale of adventure filled with surprising twists, seemingly unsolvable quests, and fantastical otherworlds. Parents and teachers will love to encourage readership of this work and even to read along with them. It is absolutely rich with Plato's intent and philosophical beliefs."  - Portland Book Review
