Gary Disher is "one of Australia's best and most innovative story writers" (ABR). Born in South Australia in 1949 Garry Disher grew up on his parents' wheat and wool farm. After doing first-year English at Adelaide University Garry switched to Australian history and philosophy. In 1971, he graduated with a BA from Adelaide University. During 1972 and 1973 he made a two-year working holiday travelling extensively, living and working in the UK, Europe, Israel and Africa before he settled in Melbourne to complete an MA in Australian History at Monash and went on to further study at La Trobe University.
In 1978 Disher was awarded a creative writing fellowship to Stanford University, California. It was here that he wrote his first collection of short stories. Meanwhile he has published over thirty highly-praised books for both adults and children.
