AVERIL KENNY in conversation with KRISTY VALLELY

Averil Kenny is an internationally published local author. She writes evocative fiction featuring strong, spirited heroines. Her storytelling is imbued with a love of literature, and our magnificent Australian landscape. Averil’s debut novel, Those Hamilton Sisters, was published in 2021. Her second novel, The Girls of Lake Evelyn, was released earlier this year, and she is currently writing her third novel, for publication in 2023. When not dreaming up stories, Averil reads voraciously – ensconced in her favourite yellow wingback chair, in a library overlooking the rainforest.  She loves hunting through op-shops for vintage typewriters and hard-to-find novels. Her very best plot breakthroughs come to her while running alongside the verdant creek. Averil grew up on a dairy farm, and began work in the tourism industry at a young age. She studied Education at James Cook University, and Journalism at the University of Queensland.
