Jennifer Jane Ealey was born in outback Western Australia where her father was studying kangaroos on a research station, one hundred miles from the nearest town. Her arrival into the world was watched, unexpectedly, by their pet kangaroo who had hopped into the hospital. Having survived the excitement of her birth, she moved firstly to Perth and then Melbourne where she spent most of her formative years. She took a year off from studying to ride a motorbike around Australia before working as a mathematics teacher and school psychologist in England and Australia, a bicycle courier in London and running a pub in outback New South Wales. She now lives in a country town just outside Melbourne, working by day as a psychologist and beavering away by night as a novelist. She has written two detective novels and  The Sorcerer’s Oath, a series of four fantasy novels and has now begun work on a new series, The Pale-eyed Mage.
