Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.

Steve Harrison was born in Yorkshire, England, grew up in Lancashire, migrated to New Zealand and eventually settled in Sydney, Australia, where he lives with his wife.

As he juggled careers in shipping, insurance, online gardening and the postal service, Steve wrote short stories, sports articles and a long running newspaper humour column called HARRISCOPE: a mix of ancient wisdom and modern nonsense. In recent years he has written a number of unproduced feature screenplays, although being unproduced was not the intention, and developed projects with producers in the US and UK. His script, Sox, was nominated for an Australian Writers’ Guild ‘Awgie’ Award

Blurred Vision by Steve Harrison
A few years ago my mid-teen daughter asked me, why aren’t there many all-out adventure novels featuring girls as the main characters?

Terrific book about the ups and downs of a British band in the late 1960s. The combination of Mitchell's beautiful writing and a gripping storyline really brought that era and the music scene to vivid life. Highly recommended. ...more
