Kylie Gardiner


Hi I’m Kylie! I write Young Adult fiction and short stories. I’m currently completing a Masters of Creative Writing and Communication which I am really enjoying. I have had a number of short memoir pieces published in various anthologies and am currently working on a contemporary young adult novel. It’s hard to pick a favourite novel but I’ve always loved Jane Eyre and I find Charlotte Bronte such an inspirational woman for her time. Other than reading I enjoy walking the beautiful beaches and trails of the Mornington Peninsula with my family.


YA, Short Stories
