Author's Bio

Matt Shanks was born in Sydney and now resides in Melbourne. Sandwiched between the bush and beach, the inspiration for his short stories comes from a love of his unique country. His early fascination for the combination of words and pictures saw him complete a Bachelor of Design at the University of Sydney in 2003. It took him 10 years while working as a Creative Director at some of Melbourne's best design agencies to realise that this `watercolour hobby' of his needed to be shared with more than just his wife and cat. He has written and illustrated books for Scholastic and illustratedJackie French's Koala Bare with Harper Collins.
