Carrie Tiffany is the author of “Everyman’s Rules for Scientific Living”. Carrie Tiffany worked as a park ranger in Western Australia and the Northern Territory before moving to Melbourne to work for the Department of Natural Resources, and where she now works as an agricultural journalist. Carrie Tiffany then went onto to do a master’s degree in creative writing from RMIT University. However, some of the ideas for “Everyman’s Rules for Scientific Living” came to Carrie during her time as a park ranger in her 20s. Carrie Tiffany is studying for her PhD at La Trobe University, writing a thesis on “Freud and the Bush”. She has won several literary awards for her work: the 2002 “Australian Book Review” Short Fiction Award for “Dr Darnell’s Cure”, while in 2003 she won the Victoria Premier’s Award for an Unpublished Manuscript for “The Cultivator” (i.e. – “Everyman’s Rules for Scientific Living” under an early title). This greatly aided the publication of the novel, as, prior to the award, Carrie’s manuscript had been rejected by many Australian publishers, who liked the writing but thought that “no one wants to read about rural Australia any more”. Carrie Tiffany has also been awarded a New Works Arts Development Grant (2000), an Australia Council Literature Board Grant for an Emerging Writer (2001), and an Emerging Writers’ Fellowship (2002). Carrie Tiffany’s work has been published in “Overland”, “Ulittara”, “New Australian Writing”, and “Penguin Summer Stories 2002”. She also contributes to “Victorian Landscape”. “Everyman’s Rules for Scientific Living” has been shortlisted for the 2006 Orange Prize. Carrie Tiffany lives in Melbourne with her family.
