Author Biography - Pat Flynn
Pat Flynn grew up running around an old dairy farm in Queensland, before moving to Canberra to attend the Australian Institute of Sport on a tennis scholarship. After playing and coaching on the professional circuit he became a teacher, where his observations of young people - their interests and stories - led to him writing about them. Pat Flynn now writes books for a living, in a house near the beach on the Sunshine Coast. He likes to start the day off with a surf and end it walking along the beach with his wife. His books include Get Rich Quick, Don't Kiss Girls, How to Get Dumped, Aussie Chomp- The Mal Rider, The Best Ballgirl and Tom in the Stuff Happens series.
