Kaaron Warren

From “White Bed”, her first published story, which appeared in a feminist horror anthology in 1993, Kaaron Warren has produced powerful, disturbing fiction.

With four novels and six short story collections in print, and close to two hundred short fiction sales, Warren’s award-winning fiction tackles the themes of obsession, murder, grief, despair, revenge, manipulation, death and sex.

Kaaron has won many awards such as the Shirley Jackson, Aurealis, Ditmar, Australian Shadows and ACT Writers and Publishers Awards for her novels and short fiction, including Slights, The Grinding House, Through Splintered Walls and the novella “Sky”. She’s lived in Melbourne, Sydney and Fiji and now in Canberra with her family.

The Grief House, published by IFWG Publishing Australia, is, using Kaaron’s own words, “my best yet”, and going by commentators in the industry, this is the case. IFWG Publishing chose to include her novel as part of their masterpiece series, Dark Phases. It won the Best Novel category in the 2016 Australian Shadows Awards.
