(1960- ) Australian author of Young Adult fiction, two titles being of sf interest: Polymer (1995), a Space Opera involving a galaxy-wide War; and Spare Parts (1999), set in a Dystopian Melbourne a century hence, where a rigid caste system encourages the poor to sell their bodies to the rich for purposes of Identity Exchange; an analogous Identity Transfer process is also used to create Cyborgs tough enough to submit to the ordeals of space travel, with the help of AIs.
