Mike Barry is a writer and illustrator from Sydney's Northern Beaches.

He created, crowd-funded and self-published the first two books in his middle-grade graphic novel series, Action Tank, which have been shortlisted for multiple literary awards including the NSW Premier's Literary Awards, Russell Prize for Humour Writing for Young People, Aurealis Awards and Comic Arts Awards of Australia.

The first Action Tank book was also included in the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge, and earned Mike a mentorship in the CBCA Maurice Saxby Creative Development Program.

In 2022 Mike joined forces with bestselling author Nat Amoore to illustrate We Run Tomorrow, a story about four kids - and four superheroes - who are taking their future into their own hands.
