About Me

Hello there, and welcome to my blog.

I’m a writer of Australian fiction, author of the novels Black Diamonds, This Red Earth, The Blue MilePaper DaisiesWild Chicory and Jewel Sea – all tales of passion, politics and history, of ordinary people living through extraordinary times in the land I call home. You can find out about all my books here and the nice things people have been saying about them here.

When I’m not writing, I’m reading. In real life I’m a book editor and literary consultant, and I’ve been working in the Australian book publishing industry now for twenty years. Just can’t get me enough narrative action.

Raised in Sydney in a house that was humble but for its library, I was always going to quite like things with words in them and do wordy type things myself. As I do here in this little bloggy space, whatever those things might be. Books, writing, wondering and wandering the rolling green and gold hills of the Central West where I live today on a small rural property with my muse de bloke, Deano, two cats and three chickens, and occasionally the kids when they come home to graze.

Join me, and join in. Dream large and love larger,

Kim x
