About the AuthorMiles Rothwell impressed a primary school teacher with a poem titled 'Snow' and then in his late teens won a school poetry competition. When the band Talking Heads released 'Remain In Light', Miles became obsessed with writing lyrics. After reading Joyce's Ulysses, Miles knew he wanted to become an author. His first manuscript was written while living in Darlinghurst in the eighties. Miles started working in the corporate sector and continued to write more manuscripts. Miles is the proud father of Alexandra and Tristan. Miles’ other interests are music, sport, going to the beach and pretending to know something about wine – which he does quite often. Miles and his children like going on holidays, especially the South Coast of NSW. Miles ranks making Spike Milligan laugh at an ABC shop book signing as one of his greatest personal moments and publishing Night Watchers as another. Miles is currently working on his next novel.
