George Ivanoff is an author and stay-at-home dad residing in Melbourne. He has written more than 100 books for kids and teens, including the RFDS adventures, the You Choose series and the Gamers trilogy.
As a child, George loved reading interactive books, where he got to make decisions about the direction of the story. He has had more fun plotting and writing the You Choose books than pretty much anything else. And writing the RFDS adventures has opened his eyes to the amazing working done by the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
He is thrilled that You Choose: The Treasure of Deadman’s Cove won the 2015 YABBA for Fiction for Younger Readers.
George drinks too much coffee, eats too much chocolate and watches too much Doctor Who. He has one wife, two children and two cats.
'Time and again I find myself drawn back to science fiction... It’s a genre of infinite possibilities.' George Ivanoff, Australian Literature Review
