Ian Napier

Ian Napier's career has been largely in rocket science with the Australian Defence Department. He has several degrees in science including a PhD from Cambridge University.

His earlier books, Crocodile Dreaming and Totem, were written for children in the 8-11 age bracket while The Ghosts of Mars and an upcoming novel, Dragon's Teeth, are for young adults.

Ian lives in South Australia and has five feisty grand daughters who provide him with both inspiration and literary criticism.
