Wrote Chemical World: Science in Our Daily Lives (Orca 2020) that explores some of the chemicals people use or come into contact with in their daily lives. It invites young readers to notice what's around them and to ask questions about how they use things and what they eat every day that can affect their health. Rowena Rae also co-authored Meg and Greg: a Duck in a Sock (Orca 2020) with Elspeth Rae, the first book in a series designed for shared reading between a child learning to read and an experienced reader. The stories have special features that help children with dyslexia or other language-based learning difficulties find reading success.

Rowena Rae worked as a biologist before becoming a freelance writer, editor and children's author. She lives in Victoria.
