Honey Brown lives in country Victoria, Australia, with her husband and two teenage children. She began writing in 2000 and is the author of five critically acclaimed novels. Before settling down to raise a family she worked and lived in various remote places throughout Australia. She spent her childhood in Campbell Town, Tasmania, growing up in the convict built “Mill House”.
Better suited to the world beyond the classroom, Honey left school in year 11. Some of the more memorable jobs she recalls over the years include her time working as a barmaid at the infamous Kalgoorlie pubs, caretaking an isolated Trout Farm in the Snowy Mountains, and scallop shucking in tropical North Queensland.
Active and a keen bushwalker, a life-changing blow came for Honey in her late-twenties when she was involved in a farm accident. The resulting spinal injury left her confined to a wheelchair. Honey turned to writing as a way back from the trauma and the depression that followed.
Candid about the tough road back from acquiring a disability, Honey now focuses her energy on writing, traveling with her family and engaging in the promotional side of being a popular novelist.
