About this author

Hi, my name’s Tansy Rayner Roberts. I’m a Tasmanian writer. I work from home, in between daughter-juggling and doll selling.

My fantasy trilogy (HarperCollins Voyager) features flappers, shape-changers and bloodthirsty court politics. It tells the story of Velody, a dressmaker who discovers a hidden war being played out in the night sky of the city of Aufleur, and of Ashiol, the exiled Ducomte who would do anything to avoid ruling the people who cast him out.

The first two books, Power and Majesty & The Shattered City, are out now. The third book in the trilogy, Reign of Beasts, is due out early in 2012.

steampunk aliensVery cool that the Table of Contents has gone public now, so I can announce this one – I had a piece accepted into the anthology Clockwork Universe: Steampunk Vs Aliens, which will be the inaugural book coming out from start up publisher Zombies Need Brains. They raised the money for this book via Kickstarter last year, and it’s now all coming together!


I’m really proud of my story, one of two h...

" Not sure I can link here, but I'm going to try. In short: a fun book in the Pratchett/Adams mode, cleverly done with good pace, imagination and entertaining characters. Well worth the investment. For the full review, try:

Talie Helene Hi Tansy. :-)


Rowena Daniells Hi Tansy,

Arghhh, another pass word!

Not sure what I'm going to do with this Good Reads thing.

I'm reading non fiction for research at the moment. A history of QLD. Believe me, Brisbane was like the Wild West (the real Wild West) in the 1850s.

Cheers, R.
