Charlotte is an Australian author living in Sydney.
She has a Masters Degree in Screenwriting from the Australian Film Television and Radio School, and eight published novels with Penguin Random House Australia and Pan Macmillan Australia.
Her forthcoming novel MIGRATIONS is her first foray into adult literary fiction, and will be published by Flatiron Books in August 2020, and around the world.
Though she grew up in Australia, McConaghy has always felt a connection to the UK, where her ancestors emigrated from, and where many of her relatives still live today. While roaming along the Irish coastline, seeking roots and family and watching the birds, the first germ of an idea for MIGRATIONS was born. It wasn’t long before her passion for wildlife and her distress over the disastrous extinction crisis faced by the world today collided in the story of a woman’s pursuit of the world’s last birds.
Fuelled by her love of nature and her interest in stories of fierce women, McConaghy is currently working on a new novel about the biologist charged with using wolves to rewild a landscape and bring a forest back to life.
