Cristy Burne
(Australia - Western Australia)

Cristy Burne has joint New Zealand and Australian citizenship, has travelled widely and lived for several years in Japan as a teacher and editor. It was during this time that she became fascinated with Japanese folklore and the supernatural yokai (demons) that are very much a part of Japanese culture, but little known outside Japan. Cristy has spent most of her career as a science writer, and currently works for a computing network designed to solve global problems. Though she won the Voices on the Coast Youth Literature Award for emerging writers in Queensland, Takeshita Demons is her first published book. Cristy and her husband live in Perth.

Current title: Takeshita Demons
