"Nothing in my suburban background would even indicate I would be involved with Africa. But once the addiction takes hold, it takes over your life"

Tony Park was born in 1964 and grew up in the western suburbs of Sydney. He has worked as a newspaper reporter in Australia and England, a government press secretary, a public relations consultant, and freelance writer. His novels have been acclaimed bestsellers since his very first, Far Horizon.

He is also a Major in the Australian Army Reserve and served six months in Afghanistan in 2002 as the public affairs officer for the Australian ground forces.

He and his wife, Nicola, divide their time between Sydney and southern Africa where they own a home on the border of the Kruger National Park.
