Lian Tanner has been dynamited while scuba diving and arrested while busking. She once spent a week in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, hunting for a Japanese soldier left over from the Second World War. Nowadays she lives by the beach in southern Tasmania with a large fluffy tomcat called Harry-le-beau.
She is the author of The Rogues trilogy, The Keepers trilogy and The Hidden/Icebreaker trilogy for middle grade readers. She has also written books for younger children, Ella and the Ocean, a picture book, and A Clue for Clara, which won this year’s Davitt Award for Best Children’s Crime Novel.
