Author Biography

Born into an ever-growing family of ten (plus pets), Patrick was raised in the Melbourne beachside suburb of Seaford. His childhood consisted of footy, running through the tea-tree, Dungeons and Dragons, and ten-part harmonies in the family's bright orange and spluttering VW Kombi van. Even as a child, Patrick was writing stories, starring in his own Powerful Patrick series: a major hit with his Mum, Dad and rabbit Snowball. Confusion, insecurity and his desire to be Michael J Fox took Patrick down the corporate path. After gaining a commerce degree at Melbourne University, followed by a three-year stint with a big mining company, Patrick realised that he was possibly the world's worst accountant. A dramatic change saw Patrick go back to study physiotherapy and in 2000 he landed his dream job at the Sydney Olympics. In his own time, Patrick continued his passion for writing: poems for retiring colleagues, love letters to his wife Lisa, epic emails of adventures abroad and stories gathered from the confessional plinth. And then: a flood. His first son Noah was born, followed by Reuben and Grace. He'd found his life calling and with that the next half of his career, as a story teller. Nathaniel Eckstrom is an Illustrator based in Sydney, Australia. He has worked on a number of Children's Picture Books including The Ugly Duckling, Me and Moo and the upcoming Ricker Racker Club. Nathaniel has also illustrated for a number of commercial clients including Cadbury, Nestle, ABC, SBS and King Island Dairy.
