Tim Winton is an Australian author of fiction. He was born in Perth and moved when he was young with his family to Albany, a small town located in the country. He has written novels for a variety of audiences and age groups.

He wrote his first novel while studying as a student at the Curtin University of Technology. An Open Swimmer did well on shelves and helped to launch his professional writing career. Winton said that he wrote about three books while he was studying at university.

Tim Winton wrote his second book Shallows, which was released in 1984. This second book won the Miles Franklin Award the same year. He released several more books through the years, but it was Cloudstreet was the book that allowed him to write on his own for good. The book is not only likely his most well-known work, but it has been extremely popular in Australia, making favorite and best-loved novels lists on a regular basis.

Winton has come out with several fictional standalone novels through the years. His book The Riders came out in 1995 and made the short list for the Booker Prize. So did Dirt Music, his book that was released in 2002. Both of these novels did very well and they currently have the honor of being adapted to film Winton has also won other awards for his novels, including the Miles award three times for three different novels.

This author now has the title as one of the most respected novelists in Australia. He spends his time writing not only for adults, but for children too. All of the books published in his name are still in print and selling on the shelves and have sold so many copies that they have been translated into over fifteen different languages.

On top of that, Winton’s work has also made it to the screen, the stage, and the radio waves. His novel Dirt Music also was a collaboration where he worked with the broadcaster Lucky Oceans in order to make a CD of music that would accompany the novel (also called Dirt Music). He has lived in many places, including France, Ireland, Italy, and Greece, but resides with his wife and their children in Western Australia.

Winton is the author of the Lockie Leonard series. The fictional series is designed to be read by young adults and children. The series kicked off in 1990 with the release of the fun and light-hearted first book in the series, titled Human Torpedo. The second book came out three years later and is called Scumbuster, and Winton made the series a trilogy with the release of the third book in 1997, which is titled Legend.

Human Torpedo is the first book in Tim Winton’s Lockie Leonard series. The main character in this series is Lockie Leonard. He is thirteen years old and has just moved to town, making him the new kid. Lockie does not really have anything on his side or about his personality that he thinks will be interesting to the other kids that live there.

There is one thing that sets him apart from the rest, and that’s the fact that he is a really great surfer. But slowly and surely, Lockie starts to make new friends in this town. He even starts to have a love interest in town; her name is Vicki and she is really beautiful. Lockie has never really liked a girl before and never had a girlfriend or anything. Vicki likes him too and so the two of them start hanging out more.

Maybe it was a good thing that he started hanging out with Vicki, or maybe it’s a bad thing. Either way, Lockie goes from being the new kid in town that no one knows about to one of the most popular kids in school. It seems like virtually overnight everyone knows his name.

It feels a lot like being famous, and Lockie never thought when his family moved that he would end up being the popular kid. He thought he was going to be the outcast and not make any friends, but that hasn’t proven to be the case. In fact he is now one of the most well known kids in his school and has a ton of friends as well as an impending girlfriend.

Vicki is really cute, but when it comes to love, how much can a thirteen year old know? Lockie is about to take a crash course in love the hard way. Read on and find out more about this teenager’s adventure through a new school and first love and more as he hits the waves and enjoys just being a regular kid.

Scumbuster is the second book in Tim Winton’s young adult series, Lockie Leonard. Lockie is just a regular teenager trying to do what he loves. Even though he moved to a new school and had to make new friends all over again, the transition hasn’t been that bad. However, Lockie is not out of the woods yet in this engaging sequel to the debut novel in the Lockie series.

When it comes to his life, Lockie is the first one to admit that it is pretty much a disaster zone. His best friend is a little strange, and things with Vicki confused him for a long time. At least he still has surfing, because now Vicki has dumped him and he needs to find other things to do.

Lockie spends a lot of time hanging out with his new friend, Egg. The two seem very opposite, but their differences actually are what make their friendship cool. When they find out that a big company has been polluting their local bay, Lockie and Egg spring into action to try and put a stop to it.

Lockie still has surfing, but a new up and comer from primary school may just have him beat. Can Egg and Lockie take positive social action for change and save the bay? You are going to have to read this interesting sequel in the series from Tim Winton to find out!
