Kylie Orr writes about everything from the stages of underwear in marriage to why telling women to stop being so emotional is a death wish. Over the past fifteen years, her feature articles have been published across Australia’s main media sites, Fairfax and News Ltd. She believes these musings justify the English major in her Bachelor of Arts degree.
In 2017, Kylie was delighted to partner with Lake Press who published four titles in her children’s book series, ‘Whose Hat?’ ‘Whose Pants?’ ‘Whose Shoes?’ ‘Whose Bag?’ The books were sold throughout Australia and Canada.
More recently, Kylie’s venture into the world of novel writing has seen her awarded a scholarship to attend Fiona McIntosh’s Fiction Masterclass. Her unpublished commercial fiction manuscript, ‘The Fundraiser,’ was commended by judge, JP Pomare, in the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards 2019 and longlisted for The Richell Prize in 2019.
Kylie lives on the side of a cliff in Victoria’s Dandenong Ranges. She shares the space with her four children and just the one husband.
