Mikki Brammer is from Tasmania, Australia, but thanks to her parents’ wanderlust, spent parts of her childhood throughout the Asia Pacific, exploring volcanoes in Western Samoa, jungles in Indonesia, archipelagos in The Philippines, and urban backstreets in Singapore. After a year as a high-school foreign exchange student in Lincoln, Nebraska, and another working in a bar in Barcelona, she earned a Bachelor of Arts (French and Spanish) and Bachelor of International Business from the University of Queensland, and a Graduate Certificate in Writing and Editing from Queensland University of Technology. She got her start in journalism interviewing the likes of Willem Dafoe and Jane Birkin for an Australian pop culture magazine, before moving to Paris to work as a writer and photographer, including penning the regular column “My Life in Paris” for the British magazine France Today.
Now based in New York City, she has spent the past eight years writing about design, architecture and art for publications including AFAR, Architectural Digest, Details, Dwell, Lonely Planet, Luxe Interiors + Design, Metropolis, Surface, and Well+Good.
The Collected Regrets of Clover is her first novel and was inspired by the regrets and wisdom that people share on their deathbeds, and her curiosity about why death is such a taboo topic in Western society, even though it’s the one thing we all have in common. It will be published on July 6, 2023.
