Award winning YA & children’s author, Kaz Delaney, and her alter ego, Kerri Lane have currently sold over 70 books between them.
Kaz's current title ‘Almost Dead’ (Allen & Unwin, 2014) is a ‘crossover novel’, closing the divide between adult and teen fiction. Almost Dead follows the first book in this series, ‘Dead Actually’ which was the recipient of both the ARRA Award ( Favourite Paranormal) and Aurealis Awards (co-winner, Best Young Adult Novel) for 2012. Dividing her time between teaching and writing, Kaz formerly tutored Creative writing for CSU’s Enrichment Program as well as teaching and creating courses for the Australian College of Journalism.
Her next Allen & Unwin novel is entitled Jack and the Jillaroo is due out in Jan 2016 and is something of a rural departure for Kaz. Kerri’s latest books/stories include ‘The (Not So) Greatest Show on Earth’ – a humorous choose your own adventure story, (Macmillan Sept 14) and an inclusion – Pedro and the Perilous Paintbrush - in Stories for 9 Year Olds – Random House, Dec 2014.
