Jeff Maynard is an author and documentary maker. His books include The Letterbox War of Kamarooka Street, Niagara’s Gold, Divers in Time and Wings of Ice. His latest book, The Unseen

Anzac, tells the story of Sir Hubert Wilkins, the official Anzac photographer during World War I. Jeff discovered Sir Hubert’s lost records in America in 2014, and uses them to reveal the story of a man that Australia has largely forgotten. Jeff is currently making The Unseen Anzac into a documentary film and will be returning to the USA later this year to locate more previously unknown Anzac records and artefacts. Jeff is a member of the Explorers Club and on the board of the Historical Diving Society. He lives in Yarraville with his wife, Zoe, and their family.
