G. M. Worboys

Biography

G. M. Worboys grew up on a dairy farm in Victoria, Australia. Education and life led him to the city, first Melbourne and then Sydney. After almost twenty years he decided enough was enough and moved to a small bush block in the southern tablelands of New South Wales, from which he continues to create computer software for clients far removed from the kangaroos and goannas that stare in at him through the office window. A life-long obsession with books finally led him back to writing, an interest that for many years had seen exercise only in technical writing and scarily long emails.

Dryad was his first novel, inspired in part by the trees and the life that is so varied and abundant even in the dry of the Australian bush. Naiad and Nereid complete this first contemporary fantasy series, The Narun, but the writing hasn't stopped.
