K.A. Bedford

K.A. Bedford has been writing since he was a little kid, but started writing seriously when he was 14. His first novel, which was his first professional sale, was published in 2003, when he was 40. The lesson here, he says, is “stick with it.” K.A. Bedford attended Curtin and Murdoch Universities, where he studied Writing, Theatre and Philosophy.

This year he is planning to start a fresh burst of study through Open Universities Australia, focussing again on Philosophy. He lives in the wild northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia with his wife Michelle.
