My ABC Open Artist by Artist - Artist Pat Flynn

I'd like to introduce PAT FLYNN my partner for the ABC Open - Artist by Artist project... It's like where do I start! In this post you will notice some extra links - it'll take you into the world of Pat.

Pat is an accomplished writer, (ex-professional Tennis player and teacher), modest and humble man and it is such an honour to be producing this documentry on him and under the professional guidance of ABC Open Producer Natalija Brunovs.

Pat writes realistic fiction with a dose of humour for young adults. among his long list of books and accolades, the most recent credit to his name is shortlisted for the 2011 REAL Awards (Reading & Enjoying Australian Literature) for his novel the "Tuckshop Kid"
