Raylene Brown

Raylene Brown is a Riverina based writer whose short stories have been published in anthologies in Australia and overseas. Currently, she is writing social history inspired by three sisters who were intimately involved with the Ben Hall and Frank Gardiner group of bushrangers in the Lachlan in the 1860s.

A soil management manual for farmers was Raylene’s first written publication, and since then she has been drawn to the intersection of social and landscape narrative. As a soil scientist, she is fascinated with the way our stories develop from the ground on which we live, and shape the culture we create.
