Wild Pure Heart Tells Stories…
We are a family of writers and filmmakers — Andrew Einspruch, Billie Dean, and Tamsin Dean Einspruch.
Our books, scripts, films, and TV projects range from fantasy to children’s to documentaries and dramas. We come from a comedy background and our sensibility is uplifting and hope-filled. Our projects are quirky, upbeat, and not anything you’re going to find anywhere else. They reflect a worldview that is respectful of the earth, radically reverent of nature, animal-centric in its orientation, and seeks paths that decrease suffering. We also love to lace our projects with heart and humour, and dive into the mystic, giving people stories to make them feel better about the world — to learn, to laugh, and to open the wild, pure heart.
Through our charity, the Deep Peace Trust, we run Australia’s largest farm animal sanctuary, A Place of Peace. This means we spend part of our days tending animals, loving them, and learning from them. Our old timber cottage is home to any number of lambs, goat kids, grown sheep and goats, a one-legged goose named Gwen, an orphaned brumby foal named Galahad, numerous dogs of all descriptions, and an abundance of formerly wildling cats who love the comfort of food and hearth. It can’t help but affect our writing.
We come from a background of treading the boards in improv and stand-up, having joined forces in 1987 to write and perform as a comedy duo.
We’ve written as journalists for a multitude of magazines and online publications, and for children’s television, notably Hi-5 and Cushion Kids for Network 9.
On the other side of things, BIllie gained a gobal reputation as a highly respected animal shaman, communing with animals around the world and also with those who have passed on. It’s this knowledge that she shared with her signature book Secret Animal Business, which literally changes lives. She’s also written a dozen children’s books and won a best actress award for her role as Joy in Finding Joy, which she wrote, directed, and co-produced.
Andrew has written the award-winning humorous fantasy series the Western Lands and All That Really Matters, as well as about a kajillion kids books for the education market.
Tamsin has written many short stories and been published as a writer and reviewer in Australian Vegan Journal. She has a fresh writing voice and expresses it thrrough the genre of fantasy.
We all love cosy nights in with a warm fire, loads of animals, a soy hot chocolate, deep conversation and maybe a song, a good book, or engaging viewing. We also love hanging out with everyone from Banjo the cow to Merlin the wild stallion.
We’ll keep writing and making films, and hope we make your days a bit brighter with our work.
