Sally Dingo


Dingo: The Story of Our Mob (memoir, Random House 2001)

Unsung Ordinary Men (memoir/history, Hachette 2010)


Sally was born in Latrobe, Tasmania in 1953. After completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in politics and history at the University of Tasmania, she left the Apple Isle to see if life really was different on the mainland . After a variety of jobs, including waitressing at the Last Laugh Theatre Restaurant in Melbourne, youth worker and proofreader s assistant at the Age, she stumbled into the world of television, working first in promotions, then in sales, before transferring to TCN 9 in Sydney and on to radio at 2Day FM. However, an urge to write saw her back at study, obtaining a Diploma of Journalism at Sydney s Macleay Colleage, after which she worked for an insurance company and doing freelance work. All of which was put on hold with the arrival of children.

Sally lives outside of Melbourne with her children, Wilara and Jurra.
