Courtney Collins


Courtney Collins’ debut novel is The Burial. Her second novel, The Walkman Mix, is a work in progress. An early draft of The Walkman Mix was shortlisted for the Melbourne Lord Mayor’s Creative Writing Award 2011.

Both Courtney’s novels are inspired by the Australian landscape and ideas on the Australian Gothic. The Burial has been described as, ‘A dark, swooning upgrade of the Australian gothic genre’.

Courtney grew up in the Hunter Valley in NSW. She now lives happily, untidily, productively, with a bunch of artists on the Goulburn River in regional Victoria.

Courtney blogs on books and writing for ABC Arts online.
