- Author BiographyBill Condon's young adult novels Dogs (2001) and No Worries (2005) were Honour Books in the Children's Book Council Book of the Year Awards. No Worries was also shortlisted for the Ethel Turner Prize in the 2005 NSW Premier's Literary Awards. Daredevils made the long-list in the inaugural Inky Awards, Australia's first teenage choice awards. Confessions of a Liar, Thief and Failed Sex God won the Prime Minister's Literary Award - Young Adult. When not writing, Bill plays tennis, snooker, and Scrabble, but hardly ever at the same time. His dream is to receive a wildcard invitation to play tennis at Wimbledon - if nothing else, his knees would provide great comic relief for the spectators. He lives on the south coast of New South Wales with his wife, the well-known children's author Di (Dianne) Bates.
