Krystal Sutherland was born and raised in Townsville, Australia, a place that has never experienced winter. Since then she’s lived in Sydney, where she edited her university’s student magazine; Amsterdam, where she worked as a foreign correspondent; and Hong Kong. Krystal has also interned at Bloomsbury Publishing and was shortlisted for the Queensland Young Writers Award. Our Chemical Hearts was published in the UK in 2016 by Hot Key Books – and subsequently made into a film by Amazon Studios – and her second novel, A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares, was released in 2017.
House of Hollow, her much-anticipated new YA, was published by Hot Key in April 2021 and shortlisted for the 2022 YA Book Prize.
