Kaaron Warren grew up in Melbourne, where she wrote her first novel at the age of 14. Since then she has sold over a hundred short stories, with three novels and four short story collections in print. Kaaron has won numerous literary and genre awards, and was nominated for the premier international horror award, the Bram Stoker, for her short story All You Can Do Is Breathe. Kaaron is inspired by her environment. Living in Fiji between 2007 to 2009, her stories are imbued with the mythology and hauntings of that green and vibrant country. Her Ditmar Award shortlisted novel Walking the Tree was written while living in Suva. Since returning to Australia, she has felt a sense of fascination for the landscape of this country. This has inspired the short story collection Through Splintered Walls and informed the nature of her upcoming novel, The Solace of Saint Theresa.
