Cameron Macintosh was born in Melbourne and has lived there ever since, apart from overseas backpacking jaunts whenever he’s been able to fund them. He studied Psychology and Italian at Melbourne University, and Professional Writing at RMIT.
Since then, he has written more than 80 books for primary and early secondary students, and is co-author of award-winning educational series including Oxford Literacy, Pearson English 3–6 and PM Oral Literacy. Cameron has also honed hundreds of books for teachers and students in his other life as an editor of high quality educational titles. In the few minutes per week that he isn’t wrestling with words on the laptop, he loves singing and playing the guitar, and reading music biographies.[Source]
