Rhianna King is a Melbourne-based author whose debut novel - Birds of a Feather - was released in March 2024.


Rhianna King has spent her professional career communicating about the work of State Government environmental agencies and an Aboriginal-led not-for-profit organisation. Keen to expand her toolset and combine her love of words and pretty things, she studied graphic design and launched a freelance business in 2015. In 2020, she turned her hand to fiction writing.

Rhianna draws inspiration from the natural environment, Australia’s army of magnificent female authors, the dynamics of human relationships, and the wisdom of her two idols – Stevie Nicks and Moira Rose.


When she’s not spending time with her husband and two kids at their home in Melbourne, Rhianna is chasing her next marathon PB and dreaming of travel.

'Birds of a Feather' was published by Affirm Press. Rhianna is represented by Rochelle Fernandez of Alex Adsett Literary.

‘Rhianna King’s debut is a delightful tale about the complicated business of being part of a family whilst also trying to be yourself. Birds of a Feather is filled with memorable characters, joie de vivre and love. Hugely satisfying and fun.’ ~ Meredith Jaffé, author of ‘The Tricky Art of Forgiveness’

Affirm acquires King debut novel

Books+Publishing, 20 September 2023

Affirm Press has acquired world rights to Rhianna King’s debut novel, Birds of a Feather via Rochelle Fernandez of Alex Adsett Literary.

A gorgeously written, funny story about family and love and finding your place in the world, Birds of a Feather follows Beth Dwyer and her grandmother, Elise, on a surprising journey, rediscovering lost love and sparking new flames.


Affirm publisher Kelly Doust said King’s debut is ‘completely charming’. ‘Birds of a Feather is a beautiful, fun story about forbidden love and family dynamics,’ said Doust. ‘This is an extremely polished debut and Rhianna’s characters will jump off the page and into readers' hearts.’

‘Writing this book kept me going through Melbourne’s long lockdown,’ said King. ‘When I couldn’t see family or friends, I found myself looking forward to connecting with Beth and Elise and spending time with these characters.’

Affirm will publish Birds of a Feather in April 2024.
