Katya de Becerra was born in Russia, studied in California, lived
in Peru, and then stayed in Australia long enough to become a local. She was
going to be an Egyptologist when she grew up, but instead she earned a PhD in
Anthropology and now works as a university lecturer and a researcher. Katya is
a short version of her real name, which is very long and gets mispronounced a
lot. What The Woods Keep was her first novel (out now), which is followed by
another standalone Oasis in 2020. She has also authored and co-authored
academic articles, book chapters, guest posts and opinion pieces.
