Guy Salvidge was born in England in 1981 and moved to Western Australia in 1990. In 1996, he won the Roy Grace English Scholarship for short fiction, which motivated him to pursue a writing career. Guy studied English at Curtin University, majoring in Literature and Creative Writing, and graduated in 2002 with Honours. Completing a Graduate Diploma in Education in 2005, Guy embarked on a career as a high-school English teacher. He lives in the Avon Valley with his wife and children. Guy's first novel to see print, The Kingdom of Four Rivers, was published in 2009 by Equilibrium Books. His second, Yellowcake Springs, won the 2011 IP Picks Best Fiction Award and was shortlisted for the 2012 Norma K Hemming Award. The sequel, Yellowcake Summer was published in 2013. Guy is currently working on a crime novel Thirsty Work (which he started in 2013 while Writer-in-Residence at the KSP Writers' Centre) and he is the co-editor (with Andrez Bergen) of The Tobacco Stained Sky: An Anthology of Post Apocalyptic Noir. In 2013, his short stories were published in Alien Sky, The Tobacco-Stained Sky, Tincture Journal and The Great Unknown.
