About the Author

George Ivanoff

George Ivanoff is a Melbourne author who’s written more than 100 books for kids and teens, including the interactive You Choose series, the RFDS adventures and the Other Worlds series.

As a child, George loved reading interactive books, where he got to make decisions about the direction of the story. He has had more fun plotting and writing the You Choose books than pretty much anything else. And writing the RFDS adventures has opened his eyes to the amazing work done by the Royal Flying Doctor Service. With Other Worlds George has ventured into the realms of science fiction and fantasy, two of his favourite genres, in order to tell stories about ordinary kids facing extraordinary circumstances.

George’s books and stories have been shortlisted for numerous awards and he is thrilled that You Choose: The Treasure of Dead Man’s Cove won the 2015 YABBA for Fiction for Younger Readers.

George drinks too much coffee, eats too much chocolate and watches too much Doctor Who. He has one wife, two children and an uncontrollable imagination.

Praise for You Choose 8: Trapped in the Games Grid

“These two books in particular; Trapped in the Games Grid and Super Sports Spectacular, fall firmly into the laps of the market for 8-12 year old boys. They are relevant, modern themes written in a no-fuss, fast paced style and the stories are full of action and adventure. They present a range of endings from the realistic and tame to the outrageous and completely fanciful, and if an ending is not to your liking – simply start again and choose a different path. Easy!”

Katie Bingham, Reading Time
