About the author
David Cooley is a writer based in Melbourne, Australia. First and foremost a daydreamer, David’s love of imaginary realms began in childhood, as he listened to his favourite record, ‘Puff, The Magic Dragon.’ It wasn’t long before David lost himself in picture books, fairy tales, comic books and novels of all kinds. Gecko & Macoote first appeared in a daydream. Now, they’re ready to share their friendship and zest for life with the world. When not daydreaming away the day, David is a personal trainer and fitness instructor who loves to eat and has developed a cooking habit to support this love.
