Christie Nieman is best known for her work as an author, as an essayist, and as one of the editors in the feminist collective responsible for the anthologies Just Between Us, Mothers and Others, and #MeToo: Stories from the Australian Movement.
Her debut novel, As Stars Fall, a CBCA Notable Book, was described by one reviewer as 'Australian Gothic for young adults'. She has taught creative writing at universities and to the public, and early in her career she won an Asialink residency to be a Research Fellow at Nanzan University in Japan, where she immersed herself in Kaidan stories, traditional Japanese folk tales of the strange and supernatural.
Christie's essays concern themselves with women, storytelling, evolution, the environment, and the way that human exceptionalism plays out in fiction and in our lives, and the impact it makes on our planet. She has minor qualifications in environmental science and major qualifications in literature and ecocriticism. Find out more about Christie's books, essays, and short fiction at christienieman.com.
Christie is a parent and a librarian, and she lives and works on Dja Dja Wurrung country. Where We Begin, published by Pan Macmillan in September, is her second novel.
