Imbi Neeme

Imbi Neeme is a recovering blogger, impending novelist and compulsive short story writer, whose writing holds a toothpaste-smeared mirror up to her life. She considers herself to be a ‘domestic mystery writer’, spanning everything from ‘Who left the milk out?’ to the secrets we all keep, sometimes even from ourselves.

Her manuscript The Spill has been awarded the 2019 Penguin Literary Prize and was published by Penguin Random House Australia 2 June 2020. She is also the recipient of the 2019 Henry Handel Richardson Fellowship for excellence in Short Story Writing.
