Rowena Wiseman grew up in the south-east suburbs of Melbourne. Her education came mostly from reading Dolly magazine and J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, listening to Pulp's Common People and spending a year as an exchange student in Latvia.
These days, she works in the visual arts sector and likes exploring Melbourne laneways and galleries for a new discovery that will give her goosebumps. She lives on the Mornington Peninsula with her two children.
Rowena writes contemporary fiction, young adult and children's stories. She is the author of The Replacement Wife (HarperCollins, 2015), Bequest (Tenebris Books, 2014) and Searching for Von Honningsbergs (longlisted for the 2007 Australian Vogel Award). http://outofprintwriting.blogspot.com/p/published-work.html
Rowena's blog Out of print writing, about writing and publishing in the digital revolution, has been selected for the National Library of Australia's archive program PANDORA. http://outofprintwriting.blogspot.com/
She's been a featured writer on Wattpad since 2014. This is where she connects with readers and workshops her works.
