Adina West

Adina West grew up on a remote property on Australia’s east coast, in country New South Wales. She spent most of her childhood curled up with a book, and her first teenage job was shelving books at the local library, where she was cautioned more than once for reading them instead of putting them away.

Her first stories were laboriously typed up with two fingers on her parents’ old typewriter. Her dream of one day being a published writer progressed much faster after she learned to touch type and switched to a computer.

Adina lives in Sydney’s leafy north-west with her IT guru husband, two children, and a couple of unwelcome possums who really don’t know how to take a hint. Dark Child (The Awakening) was published by Momentum in 2013. Dark Child (Covens Rising), published in 2015, was her second novel. And Dark Child (Bloodsworn) is her third.

Adina loves to hear from readers. You can contact her through her website,
