Mark Greenwood

MARK GREENWOOD is the author of numerous children's books published in both the United States and his native Australia, several of which were created in collaboration with his wife, illustrator Fran Lessac.

His interest in world music and his frequent travels to the Caribbean led him to this story of a drummer boy based on the life of musician Winston "Spree" Simon. Greenwood and Lessac live in Fremantle, West Australia.
