Pene Henson writes queer romance. Her first novel INTO THE BLUE was published in July 2016. Her second novel STORM SEASON comes from Interlude Press in February 2017.


After time in New York and San Francisco, Pene has been back in Sydney, Australia for the past ten years. She lives with her wife and their two unstoppable children. She squeezes writing into painfully early mornings and late nights.

Her writing draws from time watching the ocean, from reading about outer space, from fandom, from considering surfers and footballers and indie bands and science and the prettiest places in the world. She’s interested in how unfamiliar places change people’s hearts.
