Portrait of George Ivanoff

George Ivanoff

George is a Melbourne based author and stay-at-home dad. He has been writing for the primary school education market for over ten years, producing over 50 school readers, chapter books and non-fiction books.

He has also written many short stories and articles for magazines and anthologies — most recently, his story Trees appeared in the Black Dog Books charity anthology Short and Scary. Gamers’ Quest (Ford Street Publishing) is his debut novel. It’s a teen, science fiction, adventure set within a computer game world. It won a 2010 Chronos Award for speculative fiction by a Victorian writer. The sequel, Gamers’ Challenge, will be published late 2011. Now that he’s had a taste of novel writing, he’s itching to get going on the next one. He shares a house with one wife, two daughters and numerous goldfish, and he eats way too much chocolate.
