About the Author

Georgina Stones was born and raised in North West Tasmania. She has a love of history, with the lives of Australian outlaws Michael Howe and Joe Byrne her main interests in that field.

She attended school in Ulverstone and has since studied journalism through Deakin University. Her natural inquisitiveness and perseverance have paid off in her work on An Outlaw’s Journal, uncovering many previously forgotten or over- looked aspects of the life of Joe Byrne, particularly in regards to his early life and connections to the Chinese community. She also researches and writes for her website Michael Howe: Governor of the Woods for which she has been interviewed on ABC Radio and featured in Traces magazine.
