About the Author
R. E. Devine writes fiction and non-fiction for adults and children alike. The author’s father delighted in spinning bedtime stories featuring the legendary Irish folk hero Finn McCool; stories which both mesmerised and inspired the young reader – but didn’t do much in getting R.E. to sleep. From those childhood tales, grew this exciting adventure series about Jack McCool, a colourful and quirky modernday Finn. This is R.E.’s first series of books for children after 25 years in journalism.
The author lives in Sydney with three boys who each swear Jack McCool is based on them. But only R.E. and the family kelpie know the truth.
