Matt Eaton


Matt Eaton lives in Brisbane, Australia and is an author of fiction and a journalist of fact. When he’s not making stuff up, he works for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) digital news service.

He’s worked in the media for more than 30 years, including seven years at the ABC’s youth radio network Triple Jay, where he was a news reader and reporter, making travel docos and tripping around the world covering pro surfing events. These days, Matt enjoys a quieter life in Brisbane. He likes swimming, walking, reading, as well as devouring the best shows on Netflix with his wife and daughters. He’s a lover of both kinds of music — rock and jazz.

His acclaimed debut novel, Blank: Mind The Gap, is a scifi paranormal thriller with post-apocalyptic overtones. If pushed, Matt describes himself as a pagan spiritualist, but says this is really way too absolute for comfort.

Sleeping Gods

Christmas Eve 1968. By NASA's best guess, the crew of Apollo 8 are an even money chance of dying as they attempt to park their supersonic spacecraft into stable lunar orbit. But they get it done, paving the way for one giant leap toward the surface. These three astronauts are the first men alive to see the far side of the Moon — the lunar face permanently turned away from Earth. Inside the tiny capsule, astronaut Bill Anders captures one of the most famous photographs of all time. Dubbed Earthrise, it reveals a fragile blue-green planet rising from behind the awesome spectacle of the Moon as seen from just 60 nautical miles above the lunar surface. But what if another, even more stunning photograph is taken that day? A photo powerful people will do almost anything to bury.
