Please enjoy this picture of me pretending to fish.

I never catch anything.

What else would you like to know about me?

Well, I live in Sydney and I have been writing books (when I can find the time) for almost 20 years. I work for the ABC and that keeps me pretty busy, so I have only written seven books.

You can find out about them on this website.

What else? Well, I live in Sydney, Australia, with my wife and three grown up sons and a dog called Cooper. Sydney is a great city to live in, but I lived for a long time in Melbourne and that is a great city too. And I lived in Canberra for a while and that is a great city too. And I was born in Perth and that is a great city. Come to think of it, every city is a great city if you have friends and a nice place to live and lots of interesting things to do.

The most important thing to know about me is that I have always loved to read books and so, sooner or later, that meant I would try to write some books too because the only thing more fun than reading stories is writing stories. If you love to read stories, try writing some as well and you'll see what I mean.
