AUTHOR: Graham Hosking was born in Sunderland, England. In 2013 a work opportunity brought him to Sydney. Whilst on a harbour walk, an idea for a children's book popped into Graham's head. The result is Graham's debut picture book, Sidney Opera Mouse. Graham is also a keen member of "The Children's Bookshop Emerging Writers Group". He continues to write and play around with ideas and hopes that "Sidney Opera Mouse" will be the first of many publications.
