Isaac Drought lives in Taranaki where he teaches at a local Intermediate school. Isaac feels his ten years of teaching have helped him to formulate stories that kids actually want to read.
It was while living in Indonesia with his wife for six years that he decided to have a crack at getting his stories out to a wider audience. He used to write stories for his students and give them the chance to illustrate them. In return he received invaluable advice about what they liked and what changes could be made.
Isaac’s other passions include surfing, fishing, the Vodafone Warriors and beach walks. On the back of his unexpected success with Alphabet Squabble (2012) he intends to look at making his long-held dream of being a children’s author a reality.
