Michael Panckridge

Current Home: Geelong, Australia

Inspired by his passion for sport and desire to get reluctant readers engaged in books, Michael Panckridge put his mind to finding out what it is kids want to read.

Ten years later he finds himself the author of over 30 books, his work ranging from the best selling Legends and Anniversary Legends series, the Toby Jones series (a rich blend of cricket and fantasy), The League of Legends series, rugby league action with the support of ex Australian captain, Laurie Daley, through to his latest novels including The Cursed, The Vanishings and The Immortal… adventure books with elements of mystery and intrigue that keep the reader guessing.

His latest series is The Book of Gabrielle, a sinister tale about a girl without a past and an extraordinary ability to see things others cannot. The Boy Who Wasn’t There and The Boy Without a Past were published in April, 2011. There are two more exciting novels that will be published in late 2012 and 2013. He is also working on a picture fiction book about the adventures of Miss and Chief… an amusing tale about two unlikely pet heroes who run the afterhours shift at the local vet.

Michael lives in Geelong and is a part time teacher.
