Graci Kim is a Korean-Kiwi author of magic-infused books, currently based in New Zealand.
Her Korean mythology-inspired debut MG novel, The Last Fallen Star, about Korean-American witches, sisterly love, and the search for belonging, will be published with Rick Riordan Presents, Disney-Hyperion, in Spring/Summer 2021.
In 2018, Graci was shortlisted for the NZ Storylines Tessa Duder Award for YA fiction. She is a 2019 Pitch Wars MG mentor; an alumnus of the AuthorMentorMatch programme; and is currently the Comms Officer for the NZ Society of Authors (Wellington branch).
She and her friends also run Love At First Chapter, a free newsletter that sends out the first chapter of a new YA/MG book, every month.
When she’s not writing, Graci is a diplomat for NZ’s foreign service. She is also a wife and mum, is really good at eating all the things, and believes most of our daily problems can be solved by hugging a dog (or ideally, many).
