ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Australian writer Krista Schade has embraced her passion for writing and social commentary through a journey spanning four decades. Hailing from Hay, NSW, amidst the vast landscapes of the Hay Plains, Krista's storytelling journey began as a dance around paper, gradually evolving into a serious commitment in early 2020.
Krista finds joy in crafting tales that delve into the complexities and challenges that shape individuals. Her storytelling approach involves following her characters, allowing their narratives to organically unfold.
Notably, her 2020 short story, "The Clothesline," expanded unexpectedly into a full-length novella, weaving together the lives of its characters with surprising depth and pleasure.
Taking inspiration from real-life escapades, Krista, along with sister Lisa Brettschneider, brought to life "T-Bone and the Mob" in October 2020. This delightful children's book captures the hilarity of her husband's animals discovering an open gate on their farm and embarking on an adventure in Hay.
October 2021 marked the release of "Lone Wolfe," the second installment in The Clothesline series, continuing the captivating narrative introduced in Krista's debut work. Two more books are planned for the series.
Krista is also the part owner and general manager of The Riverine Grazier, a rural-based newspaper and is becoming increasingly involved in the publishing industry, via her role as deputy president of the NSW Country Press Association.
