About

Michael Wagner is a children's author whose best-known books follow the funny and action-packed sporting adventures of Maxx Rumble, and the hilarious father-son rivalries of The Undys. He is also author of the novel Dog Wars, and the Aussie Nibble: Newtown Tigers.

Prior to becoming a children's author, Michael played in a band that almost became famous, spent ten years working as a radio broadcaster with the ABC, wrote and produced award-winning animation for television, and wrote and performed comedy. Michael lives with his wife, Jane Godwin (who is a proper children's author), and his two children, Will and Lizzie (who think their Dad is really cool).

Michael's latest book, Destiny's Right Hand, was published by Puffin Books in 2010.
