Author William Sparling
Will was born in Toronto, Canada and raised in Sydney, Australia. He lives in Sydney’s north west with his wife, Jamie. Will works as a Senior Media Adviser to a senior NSW Government Minister. His hobbies include running, reading, travelling, volunteering, movies and watching cricket. Camouflage Kids is Will’s first book, while Soul Captains is his second. As a child, learning of his grandfather’s service and time spent as a prisoner of war during the Second World War, instilled in him a passion for military issues. Will’s volunteer work since 2007 with Legacy, a charity which supports the families of veterans, inspired him to write the book. Previous work as a Policy Adviser to the NSW Veterans Affairs Minister also exposed him to the challenges affecting contemporary veterans and their families.
