Kim Falconer (born 23 May 1954 in Santa Cruz, California) is an Australian author of science fantasy and epic fantasy, living in New South Wales.

Active as a professional writer of fantasy since 2009,[2] her two series with Harpercollins Australia are Quantum Enchantment and Quantum Encryption.[3] Her latest series is published by Harlequin Books Australia[4]

Falconer trains in Iaido, the Japanese sword, to better choreograph her fight scenes.[5] She claims that each of her stories begins with a grain of truth.[6] Falconer is also an astrologer, running GoodVibeAstrology.com[7] and has completed a Master of Arts degree in writing from Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne Australia in 2014. She was awarded the 2014 Top Graduate Prize for highest achieving graduate in the Master of Arts (Writing), the 2014 Top Student in a Unit Prize for PWR70003 Script Adaptation: Stage, Screen and Multimedia, and the 2014 Top Student in a Unit Prize for PWR80001 Critical and Creative Practives: The Writerly Identity.[8][9]
