Born in 1989, Allyse Near counts Neil Gaiman, Angela Carter, Francesca Lia Block and the Brothers Grimm among her biggest literary influences. She obtained a Bachelor of Arts from Deakin University, majoring in Professional and Creative Writing, and won Deakin's inaugural Judith Rodriguez Prize for Fiction for her short story 'Venus In The Twelfth House' while in her second year.

Throughout 2010, Near was mentored by multiple-Aurealis Award-winning author Jane Routley, and published short stories in a number of literary journals, including Verandah, Short and Twisted, and Etchings.

Near writes deconstructed pulp-fairytales that almost always revolve around women, the wilderness and witchcraft.

She currently lives in Melbourne, Australia and is studying at Ballarat University.
