Derek Hansen


Derek Hansen was born in England and at the age of four convinced his parents to emigrate to New Zealand.  His writing talent took him back to London in the sixties where he rose through the ranks of one of the city's top advertising agencies.  Lured to Australia, Derek spent the next 25 years making ads while wishing he was writing novels.  His Lunch with the Generals was a bestseller, followed by Lunch with Mussolini, Sole Survivor and many others.
