Quick bio

KS “Kaz” Augustin is an Australian author who considers herself a citizen of the world. She has several University degrees, ranging from Computer Science to International Politics, is an avid reader of military history and tactics, and writes in several genres, from space opera to romance to fantasy. The one thing that remains the same through all of this is the amount of research she brings to each world, peopled by rich and varied characters. She has visited, lived and/or worked on four continents and hopes to make it all seven in the future.

Kaz was the creator and Chief Editor of online magazine, Sci-Fi Romance Quarterly (2013-2016), and she and her husband run Challis Tower Books. The Augustin family consists of two human offspring, a brace of eccentric cats and a Miniature Bull Terrier with a bark bigger than her entire body.

Kaz is a Linux geek. For fun, she reads, cooks, and dotes on her twin-cab diesel truck.
