If you don't know John Marsden, you might recognise his bestselling teen fiction series Tomorrow, When the War Began which has been translated and published (1993) all over the world. Turned into a film in 2010, it had a resurgence as a six part ABC series for television this year.
Born in Victoria in 1950, Marsden has written many novels and as an educator, taught full-time for many years. In 2006 he launched his own school, Candlebark, where the numbers are kept small on purpose, in the interest of focussing on a warm and friendly atmosphere and creative lively learning which is purposeful and challenging.
