Author's Bio

Personally, Will Kostakis is ready to catch a ball two seconds after it's hit him in the face. Professionally, he's thankful he's chosen a career that requires little (if any) coordination. After dabbling in celebrity journalism and reality TV, he now writes for young adults. His first novel, Loathing Lola, was released when he was just nineteen, and his second, The First Third, won the 2014 Gold Inky Award. It was also shortlisted for the Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year and Prime Minister's Literary awards. The Sidekicks is his third novel for young adults.
