Kylie Leane lives in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, South Australia, with her delightful pet cat Aislinn Dreamer.

Between her stints writing at the local café, she spends time illustrating and drawing aliens.
She was raised with a love of old classic Science Fiction thanks to her Dad and acquired a bountiful creativity thanks to her resourceful Mum.

She started writing Chronicles of the Children, focusing on the adventures of Zinkx, Shanty and Sam, when she was just ten years of age, coming up with the idea in the back seat of the car on a long family drive. Despite being dyslexic she taught herself how to write and spell through her stories.

Thanks so very, very much for asking :D Cross your fingers, I am aiming for a ComicCon release next year, I had hoped for Supanova in November, but alas, I ran into some big hurdles my editor had to help me with but I'm back on track now so all looks good again! ^^ So with some elbow grease ComicCon will have Book 2 and possibly another spin-off book as well!
Supanova in November will have the release of the illustrated hardcover of Key, which I've been crazily working on as well. So that should be awesome fun.
Thanks so much for your interest. :) It really helps spur me on to finish.
Keep well! *hugs*

So I have several stories going on at once and if I burnout in one I move onto another and that allows me to become inspired all over again and keep working! (less)

A week or so ago I had a wonderful Christmas Lunch with some author friends. My first ever Christmas Lunch with friends. It was really, really wonderful. I really enjoyed it, especially after a week of feeling incredibly lonely. 





During one of the conversations one of my friends mentioned something that has stuck with me – I cannot remember who (sorry guys!) but it was really profound. 
It was ab...

I don't give out low reviews lightly, as I really dislike ever showing discouragement to anyone - but I gained nothing from this book.
In fact, I felt like I was being repeatedly punched in the gut while reading it.
I don't know, maybe it's my curren
