Kate Constable was born in Victoria but spent much of her childhood in Papua New Guinea, without television but within reach of a library where she 'inhaled' stories. She studied Arts/Law at Melbourne University before working part-time for a record company while she began her life as a writer. She has had stories published in Meanjin, Island and other literary magazines. The Chanters of Tremaris series has been published in the USA, Japan, Denmark and Slovenia. Kate lives in West Preston, Victoria, with her husband and two daughters.
