Sarah Rose McKenzie
I'm a writer and book nerd currently based in Wollongong, New South Wales. I love reading and writing about fierce queers, radical women and marginalised identities. I’m also partial to herbal tea, misty oceans and rabbit cuddles.
In 2016, I studied Honours in creative writing, specialising in contemporary realist Australian Young Adult (YA) fiction (known as Aus YA or Oz YA). Drawing on my experiences, I wrote a novella and thesis about growing up queer in a small coastal town.
This website is a space where I share my published creative work. It’s also a platform for celebrating diverse Aus YA. In my book blog, I publish regular(ish!) reviews of Aus YA stories that have inspired me, and hopefully they will inspire you, too. Happy reading!
