Scott Monk is an author, journalist, chocoholic and monster hunter. Respected for his ability to get even the most reluctant readers to pick up a book, Scott has written four novels for teenagers, including Boyz 'R' Us, Raw, The Crush and The Never Boys. His latest novel, Beyond the Knock-Knock, is his first contemporary fantasy novel for middle school students. When he isn't busy hunting monsters, he works as a sub-editor for The Australian newspaper or watches his footy team being smashed.
We really enjoyed Scott's visit in September this year. He was a very engaging speaker and connected very well with our students. He was very organised and he was great!

Last week we had our Writer in Residence week and Scott visited us. What a wonderful person, writer and author he is!
We had a wonderful time listening to his stories, talking to him and all the students who completed his workshops have the highest praise for him. We were so pleased with the success of it all and I have you to thank for all your help. In fact, we were all quite sad when Scott left as we got to know a little bit about the life of an author and he got to know a bit about the lives of teachers as well.
The whole school is talking about the success of his visit and the insight and messages he gave to our students. In his presentations, even our behaviourally challenged students sat and listened- it was truly amazing. The impact of his visit will stay with our students for a long, long time.
