About D J Steel
D J Steel was born in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. At the age of ten years old, his family moved to Papua New Guinea. The family moved once again to Queensland, Australia when he was a teenager. He spent five years in Charters Towers, an inland gold mining town, southwest of Townsville, Australia.

He attended James Cook University in Townsville, where he studied journalism and French. It was there he developed his interest in the Aboriginal tradition of storytelling and as a part Aboriginal, immersed himself in the culture of his extended tribe and the ancestry of his family.

Following his studies, he worked for the Murdoch Press daily newspaper in Townsville, The Bulletin. He worked in print media for fifteen years. During this time, his passion for storytelling grew, alongside his love of hiking.

During a stay with friends in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia, the spark of the story that was to become Destiny's Dream germinated. In a village called Hill Top, the seed of his idea grew and the early drafts of Destiny's' Dream were written. On his return to Townsville, he worked and nurtured his idea and completed his first children's novel with magnificent illustrations by Christopher Brunton.
