About the author:
Noel Osualdini (pronounced Oswald-deeny) was born 8 December 1960, the son of an immigrant Italian quarry worker and his Australian wife. At age 5 he was hastily christened Catholic and received the Last Rites, following a near-fatal car accident in which he was run over by the son of the local Presbyterian Minister. He moved with his family a few years later to semi-rural Hampton Park and became a farm boy with ambitions of becoming a journalist. Although he wrote his first published newspaper articles at the age of 15 for a local newspaper, he never succeeded in that ambition. He has worked in technical roles in commercial and community-based television, has been a public servant, call centre operator, graphic designer and garage attendant.
