 | About

Kell Woods is an Australian historical fantasy author. She lives near the sea with her husband, two sons, and the most beautiful black cat in the realm. 


Kell studied English literature, creative writing and librarianship, so she could always be surrounded by stories. She has worked in libraries for the past twelve years, all the while writing about made-up (and not so made-up) places, people and things you might remember from the fairy tales you read as a child. 


Her debut novel AFTER THE FOREST was published simultaneously by Tor Books (US) Titan Books (UK) and Harper Voyager (AU/NZ) in October 2023. Her second novel UPON A STARLIT TIDE will be publishing in February 2025.

Kell is represented by Julie Crisp at Julie Crisp Literary Agency.
