Cally Black

Cally Black

Cally Black’s world is full of stories from a childhood on hill country sheep stations, youthful backpacking adventures, motorbike rides across the US and travelling Australia in a bus, however it’s stories set in future worlds that fascinate her the most. While she loves science and technology and the way they shape our future, it’s the people, especially those who live on the fringes of society, that really grab her attention. Cally’s first YA novel, In the Dark Spaces, won a NZ Book Award, a Queensland Literary Award, an Aurealis
Award and was a Honour Book in the CBCA awards and the Victorian Premier’s Prize. Cally also writes for children as Bren MacDibble.
