Steph Bowe was born in Melbourne in 1994 and now lives in Queensland. She has written two earlier YA novels: Girl Saves Boy and All This Could End. She is a Stella Prize Schools Ambassador for Queensland and a 2016 Mary Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust Fellow. Steph’s third novel Night Swimming is out now with Text Publishing.
Put two talented, powerful, and all-round awesome authors together and what do you get? A fun but fierce conversation of sexuality and strong female protagonists, writing practices, and the hope and beauty found in YA literature that will inspire writers and readers alike.
Cath Crowley’s latest book Words in Deep Blue (Pan MacMillan) has already been winning awards throughout the industry including the Gold Inky Award, the Prime Minister’s Literary Award and the Indie Book Award for Young Adult fiction in 2017.
Steph Bowe, whose debut novel Girl Saves Boy was written when she was only sixteen, has stolen hearts, chronicled the complexity of families and charmed readers with her third novel Night Swimming (Text Publishing).
