About the Editor – Samuel Johnson
This book has been edited by Samuel Johnson OAM – a much-loved Gold-Logie-winning Australian actor, best known for his work on The Secret Life of Us, Crackerjack, Underbelly II, Rush and as the star of the hit biopic Molly. In recent times he is more proud of his work as a breast cancer advocate and determined unicyclist.
Samuel has retired from acting until he raises $10M for cancer research. (He’s getting close, with the charity he set up with his sister Connie, Love Your Sister, having raised over $9M). With Connie, he wrote the book Love Your Sister and last year's Dear Santa – both hitting the bestseller lists and both shortlisted for an ABIA award. His recent winning stint on Dancing With the Stars reminded all of Australia how much we love Samuel Johnson.
This book will make the perfect gift for the mum (or mum figure) in your life. So, to be in to win a copy, tell us WHY you love YOUR mum – in just maximum 10 words! Our favourite three answers will WIN a copy of the book.
