Kristy Fairlamb

Kristy Fairlamb is an Australian author of young adult novels. She enjoys spending her days drinking coffee and torturing her characters with loads of tension (both love related and the nail-biting kind)!

Long before her days of writing began, she spent half her childhood in a make believe world, daydreaming about growing up, falling in love, and travelling the world. She’s worked as a nanny in country England, a junior matron in a boy’s boarding school south of London, a governess in East Timor, and made coffees and cleared tables in the New South Wales snow fields.

Kristy lives with her husband, teenage daughter, and two sons in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, where they’re lucky enough to get the occasional visit from the local koalas. She’s terrible at gardening, likes her bookshelves sorted by colour, and recently checked off a lifelong dream of jumping from a plane. When she’s not writing or daydreaming about her stories, you’ll find her reading, cooking for her family, or doing anything to avoid the housework.







A Message from the Editor

Dark, edgy, and captivating. Kristy’s writing grips tight, it draws you to the edge of your seat and sticks in your mind for days afterwards. I loved the disturbing intensity of her world and have no doubt that teenagers will fall deeply. LUCID is unpredictable, one girl’s gift that is anything but. I’d have snatched this off the bookshelf when I was young.
