My debut novel, The Secrets at Ocean’s Edge, was published on 30 January 2018 by Hachette Australia, and is forthcoming in the UK (27 September, Piatkus). It is set in mid-west Western Australia during the Depression.
I am a West Australian, though I now live in the eastern states. My parents married in Delhi. Hence my name Kali, destroyer of worlds. It was the seventies. I led a peripatetic childhood, growing up in rural England, Abu Dhabi, Algeria and Indonesia.
As an adult I continued to roam, and lived and worked in Bangladesh and Indigenous Australia as an anthropologist.
I am currently studying creative writing at The University of Queensland, supervised by the inimitable Kim Wilkins. And I have two beautiful and utterly ratbag children.
