Bill Poulos is a former freelance features and sports journalist based at Moree in north-western NSW.
His passion is the thoroughbred racing industry, and he wrote extensively on this subject for numerous magazines, newspapers and websites across the eastern states of Australia for more than thirty-five years.
Bill's research for a book on the history of horse-racing in north-western NSW was the reason Bush Tragedies serendipitously evolved - historical stories of crime, murder, misery and heartache kept dragging him away from the project at hand.
Bill won the John Newfong Award for Outstanding Indigenous Affairs reporting at the 2016 NRMA Kennedy Awards for Excellence in NSW Journalism and was also nominated for three Racing NSW Awards for Excellence in Media (2003, 2005 and 2010), winning in 2010.
Bill lives in Moree with his wife Cindy and stepson Yang. Bill and Cindy own and manage a small business in Moree, and Bill writes every chance he gets.
