Marc Ellis: Crossing the Line by Marc Ellis
Despite his recent brush with the law, Marc Ellis remains one of the most popular personalities in New Zealand. In a recent television poll, he was voted favourite New Zealand male personality. His off-the-wall humour, as witnessed over ten years in various television programmes, and his wonderful sporting achievements have assured Ellis of his place in the hearts of many New Zealanders. A former All Black and rugby league Warrior, Ellis along with his writer, Kirsten Matthew, will look at all aspects of his life, including his much-publicised "drugs bust". The book will include chapters on his sporting achievements, his starring role in "Sports Cafe" and a sidesplitting look at his life as the archetypal student at Otago University. Matthew's writing talent and close friendship with Ellis, coupled with Marc's unique humour and popularity, will guarantee the success of this title.
