Mary Lynn Mather has worked as a journalist, lectured in a newsroom, taught English as a second language, publicised festivals and overseen an art gallery. She began writing a PhD novel through the University of Adelaide in 2011. The process has entailed getting into the heads of a quartet of different people.
Mary Lynn loves to experiment with voices and play with narrative perspectives. When not trying to reconcile multiple points of view, she reads plenty of literary fiction. She was born in South Africa and now lives in Canberra with three men, two malamutes and a cat.
