Born in Melbourne and brought up in Sydney, I spent over two decades studying, living and working in the UK before returning to Australia some fifteen years ago.


My debut novel, Stillwater Creek, was Highly Commended in the 2011 ACT Book of the Year Award, and afterwards published in Reader’s Digest Select Editions in Asia and in Europe. My subsequent novels were The Indigo Sky (2011), A Distant Land (2012), and A Perfect Marriage (2018).

I have had a number of residencies at Varuna, The Writers’ House, following on from my initial award, and I am active on social media (Twitter and Facebook). I love doing radio and other interviews, and I also love hearing from readers, so do drop me a note on the Contact page if you would like to get in touch.


All of my titles can be ordered from good bookstores and are also available from online booksellers in both paper and electronic form. They are also available in large print editions and as audiobooks.


I am an academic at the Australian National University. My recent academic publications are listed at: https://researchers.anu.edu.au/researchers/booth-al
