Author bio:

Sue Bursztynski grew up in Melbourne's beachside suburbs and still lives there, around the corner from where she spent her teens, though she has travelled and lived overseas. She discovered writing and storytelling early in primary school, when her teachers put her up in front of the class to tell stories while they got on with their marking and other work. Most of Sue's writing is for children but she also writes science fiction and fantasy and works on a science fiction/fantasy magazine called Andromeda Spaceways In-Flight Magazine. Sue grew up in the 1960s, when the Americans and Russians were using all sorts of gadgets to spy on each other. She says, I like fiction, but there are so many true stories about spies and spying that are even weirder than fiction, I just couldn't resist telling some of them!'
