Our magnificent May Star Author is Australian author, Michael Panckridge. 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, 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 can’t.
Michael will be visiting Christchurch in July to talk about his writing and take some writing workshops. Stay tuned to find out more.
