Michael Stanford

After completing a Bachelor of Economics in Sydney, Michael took the unlikely step of becoming an advertising copywriter in London on a whopping 25 pounds a week. To support his day job, he became a babysitter for his niece and nephew, most of his sister's friends, and most of their friends. Over time, Michael honed his skills in dealing with tears, tantrums and projectile vomiting, which equally helped his career in advertising. In 2006, Michael and his wife Sarah had their first baby Angus and two years later, celebrated the arrival of Lilla. Michael runs his own business and lives in Scone with his family, and writes whenever he can.
