Cameron Nunn is an English and History teacher in Western Sydney, where he lives with his wife Belinda. He has a PhD from Macquarie University in child convicts and was awarded the NSW Premier's History teacher's scholarship to research child convicts in the archives in London. Echo in the Memory is the result of that research. Cameron's first novel, Shadows in the Mirror is also available from Walker Books.
Echo in the memory makes a good stimulus for discussing the lesser known history of our First Nations people who became refugees in their own land when the English colonized Australia. The superb characterization will make classroom discussion of Nunn's specialty, Convict Children, both engaging and heartfelt...Recommended * ReadPlus * What an enjoyable read. This is a very original story...The writing is simply beautiful and the characters come alive in clear detail. * Kids Book Review *
