Kim Westwood


Kim Westwood was born in Sydney, Australia, and spent several years of her childhood in New Zealand. She has always written, secretly and obsessively, while doing other more acceptable things; but that changed when her story ‘The Oracle’ won a 2002 Aurealis Award. Since then, more stories have appeared: in anthologies such as Agog!, Eidolon I and Dreaming Again, as well as in Year’s Bests in Australia and the USA, and on ABC Radio National. She is the recipient of a prestigious Varuna Writer’s Fellowship for The Daughters of Moab, her first novel.
