About the Author

Bill Wilkie is a writer with an ambitious vision to tell some of far north Queensland's more recent and dramatic history.

He grew up in Brisbane and studied sociology and Australian history at the University of Queensland. He has lived in London, Dublin and Sydney, and travelled throughout Europe, Asia and South America.

Bill was a participant in the ACT Writers Centre's HARDCOPY 2015 program. He has spoken about the Daintree blockade at writers festivals, on radio, and at conservation events.

Bill lives in the small sugar town of Mossman with his partner and their two daughters.

The Daintree Blockade is his first book. His next book will be another work of narrative nonfiction set in far north Queensland.
