Description

Our home town. Sometimes it feels like the centre of the universe, sometimes it's the bum-end of nowhere. We are her sons and daughters. These are our triumphs and our heartaches, our fears and hopes for a better life. Getting lost, falling in love, pushing boundaries, exploring the world - powerfully honest stories to make you think and feel, from the award-winning author of The Dead I Know and Changing Gear. 'Off The Map is a stunning smorgasbord of short stories - each one a treat to be savoured. These are stories that stroll through the Australian landscape with measured, confident steps that never miss a beat. Walking with Gardner is a delight - you're in for a wild, funny and profoundly moving journey.' - Barry Jonsberg, author of My Life as an Alphabet

Author Biography

Scot Gardner became a writer after a chance meeting with a magazine editor while hitchhiking in eastern Australia. Magazine articles led to op-ed newspaper pieces and eventually novels. Scot's first fiction for young adults, One Dead Seagull, was published after he attended a writing conference with John Marsden. More than a decade later, his many books have found local and international favour and garnered praise and awards for their honest take on adolescent life. They include books like White Ute Dreaming, Burning Eddy and most recently Changing Gear, shortlisted for the CBCA Book of the Year Awards; Happy as Larry, winner of a WA Premier's Book Award for young adult fiction; and The Dead I Know, winner of the CBCA Book of the Year Award for Older Readers. Scot lives with his wife in a vegetable garden in country Victoria.
