An ex professional tennis player and teacher, Pat Flynn writes realistic fiction with a dose of humour for 8-16 year olds. His book The Tuckshop Kid won an Honour Book Prize at the CBCA Book of the Year Awards and his new books include The Trophy Kid and How to Get Dumped.
I was born with a blue face and an umbilical cord wrapped around my neck in the Mater Hospital, Brisbane.
I’ve been a pro tennis player and coach as well as a high school English teacher. All three were equally nerve-wracking.
I am passionate about good health – both body and mind. I believe in the power of sharing stories in order to teach and heal.
I still play competitive tennis. I am ranked inside the top 200 players in Australia and won the Australian 40 and over title in 200.
