Kiwi born writer, Stephen Daisley

From Nine To Noon, 10:13 am on 26 June 2015

Kiwi born author Stephen Daisley has spent most of his adult life in Western Australia. While working as a sheep herder, brush cutter, truck driver, road worker, bartender construction worker and soldier, he always wrote in his spare time. He has a drawer full of rejection letters from publishers to show for it. It wasn't until he was in his 50s that he finally found success, his debut novel Traitor won Australia's biggest literary prize, the Prime Minister's Award for Fiction. He has recently released his much anticipated follow up, Coming Rain.
