Jack Dey, born to adventure, lives in the beautiful rainforest of tropical North Queensland, Australia. He has four loves in his life: Jesus; the Editor—his wife of 30 something years; writing adventure novels; and the Sand Flea. The Valley of Flowers is Jack Dey's sixth novel. He is also the author of MAHiNA; Paradise Warrior; Aunt Tabbie's Wings; The Secrets of Black Dean Lighthouse; and The Legend of Ataneq Nanuq. His next novel—La Belle Suisse—is being co-written and is soon to be released. Jack writes only to please Papa God, but he won a prize for a writing contest at school once when he was six years old. The prize was five cents.
