New York Times bestselling author Sean Williams was born in
the dry flatlands of South Australia. He still lives there with his
family, forty years later, and has no plans to move anytime soon.
Author of more than sixty published short stories and twenty-nine
novels for readers of all ages, he has been published around the
world in numerous languages, online, and in spoken-word editions.
He is a judge for the Writers of the Future contest, which he won
in 1993. He is also a multiple winner of Australia's speculative
fiction awards and recently received both the Ditmar and the
Aurealis for The Crooked Letter, marking the first time in
the history of the awards that a fantasy novel has won both.
