Kirsty Eagar grew up on a cattle property in central Queensland. After studying economics, she worked on trading desks in Sydney and London before changing careers so she could surf every day. She travelled around Australia in a four-wheel drive, worked as a cook and personal trainer, and began writing fiction. Her first novel Raw Blue won the 2010 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for young adult fiction and her second novel, Saltwater Vampires, has been shortlisted for the Ethel Turner Prize in the 2011 New South Wales Premier's Literary Awards. Kirsty is married with two daughters and lives on Sydney's northern beaches.
