Author Biography - Andrew Rule
Andrew Rule grew up in eastern Victoria surrounded by animals. Too small to be a mounted policeman, too big to be a jockey, too frightened to be a rodeo rider, he won the 1974 Sale Agricultural Show essay competition (first prize $5) before starting as a reporter with the Gippsland Times and Maffra Spectator. He later worked at The Age, The Herald and the Herald Sun. He has variously maintained three terriers, two cats and too many old ponies and young racehorses.
