ABOUT RENAE GIBSON:

Renae Gibson was born during a cyclone in 1983 in WA’s Pilbara region, but spent her formative years by the beaches of Perth’s northern suburbs. She has worked for five years as a health promotion officer raising awareness of perinatal depression – a job she loves almost as much as writing.
