Deborah Kalin is an award-winning writer of literary speculative fiction, author of the critically acclaimed collection Cherry Crow Children and of The Binding novels.

Her stories are immersive, often exploring communities deeply rooted in their landscapes and the psychology of otherness.

Her writing has variously been described as honest, relentless, “storytelling like a force of nature” (ASIM), and “endlessly surprising and wonderfully disturbing” (Aurealis Magazine).

She lives in Melbourne.
