'Barry Levy is a former South African journalist who moved with his Australian wife and two children to Australia in 1984 because of their abhorrence of apartheid. In 2004 Levy had his first novel published - Burning Bright, a story of young love, hate and child abuse, which was translated into Italian.

Levy has been a winner of the Australian Human Rights Award for Journalism - for a multiple series of stories on child sex abuse, domestic violence and homelessness; a winner of the Anning Barton Memorial Award for Outstanding Journalism (Central Queensland) - for a series of stories on child sex abuse (incest-rape), and a Walkley Awards Queensland State finalist - for his series on homelessness.'
