After graduating from uni with a doctorate in sociolinguistics, Rhyll Biest wandered the planet aimlessly for a few years while picking up other languages in Shanghai, Prague and Bremen. Returning to her home of Australia, destitution forced her to join Canberra’s army of darkness, the Australian public service.
Often the things she writes for the government are stranger than any fiction. When not at work, she blows off the cooking and cleaning to write romances that focus on relationships between characters from different countries, or love in a foreign environment. Other published works include Russian Heat and Personal Best.
