‘Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.’ – Groucho Marx
Deborah Biancotti is a Sydney-based writer and reader. She lives on the historic edge of the city in a narrow, run-down house she calls ‘the corridor’ with her partner and several cats. Her stories have been nominated for the Shirley Jackson Award, the William L. Crawford Award for Best First Fantasy Book and the Aurealis Award. She once won the Ditmar Award for Best New Talent, but that was a long time ago. She prefers lakes to oceans, winter to summer, and tea to coffee. She loves other people’s cooking and other people’s cleaning. She’s an animal welfare advocate. She plans to never, ever go camping again, not if she can help it.
