Will Kostakis

Personally, Will Kostakis is ready to catch a ball two seconds after its hit him in the face. Professionally, he’s 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 Prime Minister’s Literary awards.

Title List

Monuments - "I had so much fun reading this, an Australian teen fantasy inspired by Greek-ish mythology. It's got hidden gods, a cross-Sydney treasure hunt, the bestowment of superpowers, romance, AND TIME TRAVEL. It explores what teenagers might do with the power to change their world, for good or bad, for good and bad reasons. Can't wait for the sequel."
