Kylie was born and raised in a typical Australian family, yet it was her marriage to a Hong Kong national that has had the largest influence on her writing career. Twenty years ago, she was married in a traditional Chinese wedding ceremony in Eastern China, and spent the following years immersing herself in Chinese culture and mythology.

Now living in Brisbane, she is a mother of two and the bestselling author of the Dark Heavens and Journey to Wudang trilogies.


Queenie was born in Hong Kong in 1980, and migrated to Australia when she was six years old. She is a manga illustrator who has collaborated with Dean Koontz on his New York Times bestselling ODD THOMAS series of graphic novels.
