Kim Kane

Kim Kane

Kim Kane was born in London in a bed bequeathed by Wordsworth to…a writer, a painter or a poet. Despite this auspicious beginning, she went on to practice law.

In 2004, Kim threw her unbridled materialism to the wind and started to write. Kim now works exactly part-time as a lawyer and exactly part-time as a writer and the combination is perfect.

An award-winning author who writes for children and teens in Australia and overseas. Kim’s books include the CBCA short-listed picture book Family Forest and her middle-grade novel Pip: the Story of Olive.

Kim has noticed that most proper children’s writers like chickens. Kim hates chickens. She does, however, like being backstage, her nephew, Angus, and, if she is strictly honest, most fatty snacks. Above all of these things (except perhaps Angus), Kim likes telling stories, and on a good writing day she wouldn’t trade her life for anything.

Kim lives with her family in Melbourne and writes whenever and wherever she can.
