Danny Katz


Danny Katz is the author of many books for kids and adults, including Spit the Dummy, The Poppa Platoon and the Little Lunch series. Danny was born in Canada but moved to Australia when he was a kid because he was allergic to moose. After failing as a musician, filmmaker and car-washer, he turned to writing and became a columnist for The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald. Danny lives in Melbourne with his wife, Mitch Vane, and a badly-washed car.
