About The (un)Lucky Sperm:
Living in Broken Hill, an isolated mining town, in the outback can make or break you.
Until he was seventeen, Brett Preiss – Betty, to his less forgiving friends – lived in the dusty outback of Australia, where he was one of four siblings in a dysfunctional family. He learned how to survive under the most bizarre and extraordinary circumstances. In this book, he shares the trials and tribulations of his youth through anecdotes that will leave you in tears of joy or sorrow. Travel back to the ’60s and ’70s and watch Brett transform from a sperm to adolescence. Follow him as he has his first piano lesson, complete with Hail Marys, and receive his first sewing machine … and his first ejaculation. Cheer him along in his struggles and triumphs until he leaves the desert and heads off to university, and find out why you should never ask him to look after our budgie.
The (un)Lucky Sperm is a humorous memoir—a collection of honest, harrowing and absurd accounts. If you like stories full of sarcasm and observational humour, then you are going to love this book.

Brett Preiss was born in a mining town in the hot, dry, outback of Australia. With itchy feet and longing for sea air, he headed to the tropical east coast. It was the perfect place to go to university, surf, and eat his first mango. When he discovered there was a world beyond Down Under, he packed his bags and for the next thirty years taught internationally in Japan, Germany and The Netherlands. He is an author, ESL teacher, musician, and mindfulness instructor. He also loves to tell jokes and tap dance (not at the same time!). Brett’s first book, ‘Go, Percy! Go!’ was published in English, and then in Dutch as, ‘Hup, Peter! Hup!’. His second book, ‘I’m Crazy About Holland Because …’ was a chance to share his love for cows, cheese and clogs. He enjoys creating resources for educators, as well as writing fiction for children and adults. One of his favorite quotes is from an English author, Humphrey Carpenter: “The nice thing about being a writer is that you can make magic happen without learning tricks”.
