He is a trained actor who has trod the boards with the Queensland Theatre Company and he has put these stage skills to good use in his captivating author presentations for schools, literary events and book festivals around Australia and throughout the world. He loves to inspire young people to read, learn and use their imaginations … and to give older people a good giggle … you can hear him wax lyrical on The School Magazine YouTube Channel and on our YouTube channel 9 Diamonds Press.
