Kirk Farber was born and raised in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. He went to school at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he graduated with a BA in English.

Postcards from a Dead Girl is his first novel, and was a semi-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest before finding a home at Harper Perennial. It has since been chosen as an Indie Next selection and is the winner of the Colorado Book Award for literary fiction.

His essay about life in Wisconsin is part of The Great Lakes Reader, a Delphinium book edited by Carl Lennertz (also the editor of Postcards).

Kirk's short story, "Salting the Walks," was a finalist in a statewide fiction contest which resulted in publication in Wisconsin People & Ideas magazine. His short fiction also appears online in Hobart literary magazine.

Kirk is an avid drummer and played in the Milwaukee band, Spill, for eight years before moving out west.

He currently lives in Colorado with his wife and daughter and is working on two new writing projects.
