Lachie Barrett


I'm Lachie Barratt. I'm a teacher working in western Sydney.

I'm a sports tragic, an elite armchair athlete, if you will. I will watch anything that moves, and I'm a keen follower of all things political, social and technological.

I wrote UP YOURS CAZALY because my students hate the books they are set at school to read.

UP YOURS CAZALY is the book I would've wanted to read when I was growing up. It's a story about what's happening right now...what I see unfolding around me every day. It's about how sport has a power over us all.

I love both league and AFL. In the end, in my opinion, footy is always the winner.

I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.

P.S. the amazing cover art was designed by the talented Will Pearce.
