Dave Hackett

Dave Hackett is an artist, cartoonist, author and dad who divides his time between the Sunshine Coast and the South of France with the nicest lady on the planet (to whom he is also married). He owns a share in two more cats than he planned for, often paints huge pictures on the walls of his house and knows more about 1980s music than any grown man should. Dave loves to put down his pens and walk about in nature, and thinks that every day is a big, giant adventure! Time for Adventure, Daddy is his twenty-second book.
