Mainly I was a teacher of English and Economics but at various times I was also a car park attendant, a pamphlet deliverer and a very nervous target operator at a rifle range.
I think maybe a common theme in my novels might be that people have the right to be who they are and that our uniqueness and individual differences should be celebrated.
My first novel The Running Man winning the Children’s Book Council Book of the Year as well as an award in Germany. Having all my novels published overseas. Getting invited to the White Ravens International Children’s Literature Festival in Munich in 2010.
My family and friends. People being treated fairly and with dignity. Protecting the natural environment. Words and stories. Music. Sport. The Brisbane Broncos. Queensland winning State of Origin.
Yes! I was that guy you almost ran off the road that day. Just wait till I get my hands on you!! (Or maybe you’re confusing me with Robin Williams…or perhaps Johnny Depp?)
