About the author (2018)

Patrick Kennedy grew up in a staff house next to Long Bay gaol, where a 6 in backyard cricket meant climbing the outer wall. His parents worked there as medical staff. In the Ambulance Service of NSW he was one of Australia's first Intensive Care Paramedics and later ran the Media Unit.
