The stories behind John Marsden's bestselling books
A non fiction book by

I found Ellies voice quite unexpectedly, as I drove back from the tip one Saturday afternoon. I was in an old Landrover, just 500 metres from home, and suddenly I could hear Ellie talking.'Its only half an hour since someone, Robyn I think, suggested we write this down. And its only five minutes since I got chosen. But I cant do it while theyre all crowded around me, yelling ideas and advice. Rack off guys! Leave me alone!Thats better. Now Im down at the creek. I dont know why they chose me to do this. I guess Im meant to be good at English or something.Realising that if I didnt get her voice on paper, I might lose it again forever, I pulled off to the side of the road, grabbed an old envelope that was blowing around in the back of the Landrover, and quickly wrote down the words. I drove on to my place, parked the Landie, and raced into the house knowing that I had a new book underway, and feeling very excited about it.
