I'm a spy, a thief and a liar says John Marsden. And I get paid for it. Funny, astute and practical too, this profile of one of Australia's master storytellers and educators gives great insights into the wonderful world of writing. Join John at home as he shows us just what an avid collector of stories he really is, stories that he has spun into acclaimed works of fiction like Tomorrow, When the War Began and So Much To Tell You. He also explores some of the key elements that make his writing so real; research, language skills and persistence.
