Many Australian authors have websites to which AustLit has linked. If you are an AustLit subscriber, search for the author by name and look for a website in the 'Works by' or 'Works about' columns. If there is one, you will find a summary of the website and a direct link to it. If you are not a subscriber to AustLit, or are unable to access AustLit through a subscribing organisation, such as your state or local library, try Google to find the author.
If the author you are interested in does not have a website, information may be available through their publishers, agents, or other literary organisations, or through published directories such as the Who's Who of Australian Writers or The Writers Directory. These are available in many libraries.
AustLit records information on publishers. Search for publishers by name in AustLit, or try searching for the publisher website using a search engine like Google.
