About Kimberley

Kimberley Starr is an Australian novelist and teacher whose novels have won and been shortlisted for multiple literary awards, including the Queensland Premier’s Literary Award and the Text Prize. She lives in a Victorian town that often faces the threat of bushfire.

I hope readers enjoy reading "Torched" as much as I have enjoyed writing it.”
