|Caiseal Mor squandered his youth in the town of Woop-Woop, Queensland. Diagnosed as autistic at a young age, he struggled to be "normal". At twenty, after failing spectacularly to fit in, he got it into his head to run away and join the circus. Within a year he’d moved into a damp share-house in North London. It was during his stay in England he first encountered eccentricity as a way of life and this experience inspired him to cut a path somewhat at odds with the establishment. When his working holiday visa expired he returned to Australia intending to study. A degree in theatre arts proved to be an excellent preparation for the life of a ne’er-do-well. Nevertheless, for a short while, he managed to secure paid employment as a high school teacher. His first novel, "The Circle and The Cross", was a bestseller when it was published in 1994. These days he's kept busy as a writer, sculptor, musician and traveller. Caiseal is currently living on a precarious income somewhere in the wilds of Eastern Victoria. His life is blessed by the presence of his best friend, Helen, and an assortment of inquisitive marsupials.|
