Kelli Hawkins writes reports for a private investigator, as well as working on novels for adults and children. She lives in Newcastle with her two teenagers. Over the years she’s travelled whenever possible and worked all kinds of jobs. Kelli’s been a political journalist, a graphic designer, a mystery shopper – even a staple remover. When she’s not writing she’s planning a holiday – or dreaming of one. Or reading, of course.

Kelli Hawkins writes across genres and in 2021 will have two books published by HarperCollins Australia – one a psychological adult thriller called Other People’s Houses, one a middle-grade children’s book.

She writes under the name Kelli Hawkins for her adult novels, and Kelli Anne Hawkins for her children’s books.
