Dave Hartley

Dave Hartley is an education executive, born and bred on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Dave’s people are Barunggam, the traditional owners of the Darling Downs/Chinchilla region. Dave enjoys unleashing his inner ten-year into the pages of his growing collection of published works and will never shy away from writing a whole chapter dedicated to cool bike chases, epic wedgies or hyperactive savage guard dogs. Dave surfs, plays didgeridoo and makes home made volcanic chilli sauce. He is the author of the Deadly D trilogy published by Magabala Books, co-written with Scott Prince, and the author of the TC and The Stinkiest Story Ever in the History Of The Universe and TC and the Curse of the Exploding Doll published by Scholastic in 2019 and 2020.
