Michael James Arkinstall

Good teachers take pride in telling good, interesting stories: exceptional teachers create their own stories and use them to enrich the curriculum in many different ways. Mike Arkinstall, also known as Arky, is one of those teachers who firmly believe that writing and telling stories is a vital part of creativity and real education. A new, exciting story-line is a vehicle for interest, variety and various forms of presentation. It encompasses all of the essential components of good classroom practice and successful teaching.Ravenswood and Custard is the sequel to the story of Billy Carmody's great adventures down under. It tries to explore his feelings and his desires as he begins to recover from his journey of a life time and make decisions about his immediate future. Will he be a pilot, a journalist or a scientist? He doesn't know. But with freedom comes responsibility, especially to his family and friends and Billy comes to realise that a return trip to the Antipodes will bring with it a whole raft of difficulties and several problems. He knows he will have to solve them if he is to keep his well earned reputation as "Billy the Kid".Funnily enough, that is precisely what Mike Arkinstall will need to do if he is to survive and be a successful writer.
