I am an author, poet and screenwriter who lives in Perth, Western Australia with my wife. I was named one of the Best Young Australian Novelists by the Sydney Morning Herald in 2022. My debut novel Where the Line Breaks, published by Fremantle Press, is out now.

Shortlisted for the 2019 Fogarty Literary Award, and longlisted for the 2018 KYD Unpublished Manuscript Award, Where the Line Breaks is historical fiction with a twist, a story of war, love, and what it means to be a hero.

this stunningly ambitious novel challenges us to question the history we know, the stories we’re told, and what makes a hero. A beautiful debut worthy of its 2019 Fogarty Literary Award shortlisting, Burrows handles the content delicately and with skill.”
