About the Author

Ian Heads is a highly respected journalist, historian, author and storyteller who has covered the passing parade of Australian sport for 50 years. Since 1988 he has been the author or co-author of more than 50 books. In a succession of major titles Ian has told or helped tell the stories of some of Australia's greatest sporting figures, including Mark Taylor, Louise Sauvage, Ian Thorpe, Frank Hyde, Don Talbot, Mike Whitney, Noel Kelly, Arthur Beetson, Nova Peris, Des Renford, George Piggins, Ken Sutcliffe, Wayne Pearce, and renowned paramedic Paul Featherstone, aka 'The Hero of Thredbo'. He has written a comprehensive history of Australian sport (since before 1788), major histories of the game of rugby league - and of several sporting clubs, large and small. Norman Tasker is a 60-year veteran of the sports-writing craft. He covered his first rugby Test for the Sunday Telegraph at nineteen years of age, made many major tours as travelling correspondent with Australian cricket and rugby teams, and became sports editor of the former Sydney afternoon paper the Sun. Tasker moved into the magazine field as a long-term editor of Rugby League Week, launched the cricket magazine Inside Edge and its rugby counterpart Inside Rugby, and became publisher of Australian Consolidated Press's sporting magazine division. He also wrote sports columns for the Bulletin over several years, and was that magazine's sports editor. He has written thirteen books, including four with the legendary cricket commentator Alan McGilvray.
