I grew up in a tumbling-down Victorian house in the Midlands, UK, tapping out my first stories on a tiny blue typewriter. After moving to Melbourne as a teenager, my love of all things fantastical hooked me on escapist drama. Then I grew up—but I still play with words.

My debut novel Song of Scarabaeus (Harper Voyager, 2010) was nominated for the Philip K. Dick Award and the Aurealis Award. The sequel is Children of Scarabaeus.

The Wynter Wild series, starting with Little Sister Song (2019), is a contemporary drama featuring musical siblings from bad beginnings who are navigating together through unanticipated life changes, revived family secrets, and the many meanings of love.
