Lara Fergus


Lara Fergus has worked as a researcher and writer on issues of human rights and violence against

women for over a decade and My Sister Chaos is her first novel.

She grew up in the western suburbs of Sydney and spent seven years living overseas where she worked with various advocacy groups, particularly for newly arrived immigrant and refugee women.

Back in Australia she has written for organisations such as Amnesty International, the Australian Centre for the Study of Sexual Assault, White Ribbon and VicHealth. She currently works for the Victorian Government on policy to prevent violence against women, and will shortly take up a consultancy with the United Nations on the same topic. She lives in Melbourne with her partner, Maryse.
