Since his first children's novel, Sophie's Island, in 1990 (Angus & Robertson), DAVID RISH has published seven further books, many set in Tasmania. They include two genre books, the crime novels Detective Paste and Casey's Case, and his latest book, published by Scholastic: the comedy, Extraordinarily Ordinary. Targett was shortlisted for the 3M Talking Book Awards and his story Mongrel won the Family Award for Children's Literature. A young adults' novel, A Dozen Eggs, was selected for inclusion by the influential 100 More Good Books for Teenagers.

David has been the recipient of a number of Arts Council grants and won the inaugural Ian Reed Fellowship for his radio play, Quite a Nice Island. This play was also workshopped by the Australian National Playwrights' Conference under the title Sunk. He has never been an English teacher.
