I was born in Brisbane, though we moved around a lot when I was a kid. I’ve lived all along the east coast of Australia.
I’ve been a film critic, a DJ, and a projectionist. In addition to being an author, I’ve also worked in the marketing and sales departments of an international publishing company for over 15 years.
I deal a lot with coming-of-age issues, of feeling like an outsider, and about finding your place in the world.
I’ll never forget the feeling of being offered my first book contract, something I had been working towards since I wrote and drew my first picture book when I was 7 years old.
The VANGUARD PRIME books were published by Penguin and the PALADERO series was with Hardie Grant.
Inspiring a love of reading, writing and imagination.
I’ve made numerous festival appearances and given many school talks, but I’ve also shown off my supersonic scream power on Kids’ WB.
