I live in Meanjin Brisbane on the unceded land of the Yuggera People. My parents married in Delhi, hence my name Kali: destroyer of worlds. It was the seventies. I had 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 as an anthropologist.
In 2014 I returned to creative writing, and graduated from The University of Queensland in 2019 with both a Master of Arts degree in Writing, Editing, & Publishing and a Master of Philosophy degree in Creative Writing.
My debut novel The Secrets at Ocean’s Edge was published in Australia (Hachette Australia, Jan 2018) and in the UK (Little, Brown Book Group, Sept 2018).
Life is changing all the time. So must my stories. Veils and mysteries shroud the next phase, but I’m moving towards my mountain.
