Barry Jonsberg was born in Liverpool in England – home of the world’s greatest soccer team [NOT Everton].
He moved to Australia in 1999 and became an Australian citizen in 2007, though this does not prevent him from supporting the England cricket team.
Someone has to. Barry has a B.A. Hons in English Literature and a Master of Philosophy degree in the same subject.
He was a lecturer in English in the UK and a high school teacher in Darwin, where he now lives with his wife, Anita, two children, Lauren and Brendan, and a couple of eccentric dogs.
Barry still teaches occasionally, but looks upon writing as his full-time occupation.
