Rhiannon Wilde was born in Sydney and raised by the sea. She has been a journalist, terrible barista, and high school English teacher before devoting herself to writing full time.
In 2014, Rhiannon's second-person short story You Deserve Nothing was longlisted for the Queensland Young Writer's Award. In 2019 her first novel Henry Hamlet's Heart, a queer YA about best friends, won the Queensland Literary Awards Glendower Award for an Emerging Queensland Writer.
When not writing, Rhiannon can generally be found in a cafe dressed like a slightly subdued Elton John. She is never as polished irl as the adjacent fabulous photograph taken by Jess Kearney.
