Doug MacLeod is a Melbourne writer for adults and children who has worked with most of Australia's top comedians. He started as head writer on The Comedy Company, ended up producing Full Frontal, then ran away to write episodes of SeaChange and script edit Kath and Kim. In 2008, The Australian Writers Guild awarded him the Fred Parsons Award Recognising Special Contribution to Australian Comedy. His best-known children's book is probably Sister Madge's Book of Nuns, which started as a practical joke on a publisher. It is most unprofessional to write a book merely as a practical joke, so he has decided to do it once again with My Extraordinary Life and Death.
This is a very, very silly book by a very, very funny man. "
