Rory lives in Toowoomba where his hobbies are reading, writing and table tennis – some say he could have gone pro. He is also quite partial to dogs, cake, pies, his wife Georgia and his daughter – although he only eats the cakes and pies. For ten years, he worked in public libraries and for three of those years he delivered KidLit programs such as story time and baby rhyme time. His passion for storytelling blossomed during a four-year journey around the world, when he visited every continent (except Antarctica!). From fractured fairy tales to heart-warming adventures, Rory’s books are beloved by readers of all ages. Visit for Rory’s complete bio.
