Wil Wallace is an historian, volunteer and writer. He was born in Adelaide at a hospital that is now a hotel and grew up in a house that is now part of another hospital; the realisation that the world is a confusing and bewildering place is a great inspiration in his writing.
Early in his childhood, Wil was convinced by a number plate that Victoria was "The Place to Be" and now lives on a property out of Lara, near Geelong.
After spending the summer of 2009/10 on scholarship at the Australian National University, Wil completed an Honours thesis at Deakin University that was recently nominated for the Vice-Chancellor's Prize.
He is now working on a Doctorate through the Australia Centre at the University of Melbourne.
Wil is a disgruntled and non-voting member of the ALP and does not follow any particular doctrines or philosophies.
As well as reading, writing and studying, he likes to cook and take photographs.
