Margo Lanagan

Margo Lanagan has become one of my favourite authors. I first read her short story collection Black Juice and thought it was great. Since then I’ve enjoyed everything by her that I have read. She writes wonderfully.
You can find her on twitter as @margolanagan, her website is Among amid while and her wikipedia page tells me that she was born in 1960, in Waratah, New South Wales.
You should read her books
