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 has five books published by HarperCollins Australia. Three are psychological adult thrillers. Other People’s Houses was published in 2021, followed by All She Wants in 2022. Her latest, Apartment 303, was released in March 2023.

In 2021 her first middle-grade children’s book called The School for Talking Pets was released, followed by Birdbrain in 2022. Copycat will be out on 30 August 2023.

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