Poppy Steirer is a home-schooling mom to three, a beekeeper, and Jane of all trades. She enjoys operating heavy machinery, firearms, and gives up sarcasm for Lent every year. Her literary aspirations have led her to complete several writing courses and a smattering of mentorships. Following an intense stint of diaper changing, she began writing again after a particularly vivid dream. Unable to ignore the voices in her head, and unwilling to become medicated, she began putting them down on paper, and her first novel was born. Since its inception, she’s written Sci-fi and Fantasy full time, and been long-listed by the Australian Writer’s Centre.
