Ged Maybury originally trained in architecture and worked in the building industry, then switched to being a stage actor and playwright, which lead him to becoming an author. He has written 17 published sci-fi and comedy books, and has twice been a finalist in the NZ Children’s Book of the Year Awards (1994, 2001). His printed books sold in Canada, the UK, Australia and NZ. His digital books sell world-wide.
