Sam de Brito Profile

Sam de Brito's novel, The Lost Boys, will be published next month. As a lead-in the author is interviewed by Andrew Taylor in "The Sydney Morning Herald".

De Brito began writing The Lost Boys after he "ran screaming in horror from 'The Sunday Telegraph' social pages", which he had edited for less than six months. De Brito says it was an unhappy time. He was fed up with journalism, and found writing for television series like Water Rats and White Collar Blue equally as unsatisfying.

"I guess I wrote myself out of the place I was in and to do that I dumped a lot of stuff into the book," he says. "It is a sad book but it was written from a sad place."
