Will Kostakis is an award-winning author, known for his famous Twitter spat with Guy Sebastian and that one time a member of Destiny’s child said his name. He’s always ready to catch a ball two seconds after it’s hit him in the face and is thankful he’s chosen a career that requires little (if any) coordination. After dabbling in celebrity journalism and reality TV, he now writes for young adults.
His first novel, Loathing Lola, was released when he was just nineteen, and his second, The First Third, won the 2014 Gold Inky Award. It was also shortlisted for the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year and Australian Prime Minister’s Literary awards.The Sidekicks is his third novel for young adults, and his American debut.
