A booming baby, Earned was born in Drumcondra. His mother a music teacher, his father on the railways, the family led an itinerant life through country regions. Earned's literary promise was revealed when he scored high marks for school essays. He subsequently pestered La Trobe University for a decade. In the wake of being a famous reporter on an island, Earned enriches his potential by touring overland using a quadrant and augments this with his dictum Provenance is for Poobahs. When Earned is not frolicking with cephalopods in Port Philip Bay (for which, he says, he's well-armed), he lurks between Arthur's Seat and Martha's Mount. Earned cannot prove he's related to Peter Lalor. (Author's biography for pseudonym in, Cordite: Children of the Malley II; no.34, 2010.)
