Kirsty Manning

Kirsty Manning grew up in northern New South Wales. A country girl with wanderlust, her travels and studies have taken her through most of Europe, the east and west coasts of the United States and pockets of Asia. Kirsty’s first novel was the enchanting The Midsummer Garden published in 2017. Kirsty’s journalism and photography specialising in lifestyle and travel regularly appear in magazines, newspapers and online. The Jade Lily, compelling and pacey, is her second book. She lives with her husband and three children amid an old chestnut grove in the Macedon Ranges, Victoria. courtesy Allen & Unwin and Kirsty Manning
