About the author
When Clint Greagen became a stay-at-home dad he turned to blogging to connect with the world - and stay sane. His Reservoir Dad blog won Best Australian Blog 2013 in the Personal and Parenting category. Clint lives in Reservoir with wife Tania, and sons Archie, 9, Lewis, 7, Tyson, 4, and Maki, 2.
Clint quit his job to become a stay at home dad when oldest son Archie was two and recalls that some of his co-workers were bemused and there was even the odd occasion when his manliness was questioned. As usual, he sought refuge in writing. He wrote a crime novel or three before the demands of his new day job led him to turn away from longer writing projects in favour of blogging to connect with the world - and other stay-at-home parents - and to stay sane. Clint's blog, Reservoir Dad, won the Best Australian Blog 2013 in the Personal and Parenting category.
