Justin Brown is a bestselling author and radio host. He wrote his first book when he was seven-years-old (complete with ISBN number and recommended retail price) but waited a few more decades to publish the travel memoir UK on a G-String. More adventures followed, inspiring Teed Off in the USA and Bowling Through India, the latter winning Whitcoulls Travel Book of the Year 2009.

Having penned the successful Speak series, Justin began writing chapter books for kids and was surprised how much he enjoyed it. The Magic Carwash, Runawayland and the sporty adventures of Mike-Cool-As-You-Like have proved very popular in schools. His first junior novel ('Shot, Boom, Score') - published by Allen and Unwin won a Notable Book Award.
