Nigel Gray has had a fascinating life. Visit his website and you can read his biography:
I spent two years travelling and working in ten European countries and was then arrested by a beautiful Greek/Irish teenage girl and an unplanned pregnancy. I became an anarchist, was involved in numerous political causes, was arrested many times, locked up on a number of occasions, and deported for political offences from four countries.
Nigel now lives in the hills of Perth. He’s written so many books in so many genres in so many countries. Unusually, he has managed to produce award winning books for both children and adults. His last book, A Baker’s Dozen, was published two months ago and will be available from WA public libraries some time in 2008.
