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.

How far would you go for the code you love? Footy star Fitzy is having an ordinary year. Keeping him sane is his beloved rugby league. When a newcomer called Jonathon and the AFL pushes onto his hallowed turf, rivalries simmer and explode. Who wins?
