Ree (Maree) Kimberley is a writer from Brisbane, Australia. She loves reading, travel, searching for books in second hand stores and everything French (yes, even eating snails).

Her writerly obsessions include weird science, bizarre pets and strange places. She also has a thing for circuses. Ree enjoys combining her obsessions into stories but sometimes she just writes about things that happen.

Ree's first novel for young adults, Rat City, is now available.
