I am a bookseller with Hordern House Rare Books in Sydney, Australia, where I first became interested in the culture of book burning while researching a catalogue of utopias and imaginary voyages. My first book, Burning Books, has been published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2008.
Together with Mark Tewfik, I am currently working on a picture book investigating the graffiti written on bombs during the Second World War.
