Simsion, Graeme c Rebecca Rocks.jpg

At the age of 50, Graeme Simsion sold his IT business and enrolled in a screenwriting program at RMIT. Five years and ten short films later, he had a screenplay that nobody wanted to finance.  So he re-wrote The Rosie Project as a novel, which has now sold over 3 million copies, and Sony Pictures duly acquired the screenplay. A sequel, The Rosie Effect, was also an international bestseller. Graeme's latest novel is The Best of Adam Sharp.
