About The Author
Christopher Miles used to trace maps from the Melways and go exploring in outer suburban Melbourne on the weekends. He didn't discover any new continents, but he did find a park he hadn't seen before. Well, more a strip of grass than a park, really. But the thrill of discovery - and his fascination with maps - never left him.
He has worked as a hospital orderly, proofreader, bookseller, editor and website developer, and lives in Melbourne with his partner, his daughter and the ghosts of three chickens.
