Luke Davies is the author of two novels, four volumes of poetry and co-writer, with Neil Armfield, of the feature film CANDY.

Davies' most recent poetry collection, Totem, won the 2005 South Australian Premier's Literary Award for Poetry, the Grace Leven Poetry Prize 2004, the Age Poetry Book of the Year Award and the overall Age Book of the Year Award, an unusual feat for a book of poetry. In 2004 Davies was also awarded the Philip Hodgins Memorial Medal for Poetry.

Davies' novels include the cult best-seller Candy and Isabelle the Navigator. Candy was shortlisted for the 1998 NSW Premier's Awards and has been published in France, Spain, Germany, Israel, Greece, the UK and US. Luke was a Sydney Morning Herald Young Writer of the Year in 1998.

Candy, starring Heath Ledger, Abbie Cornish and Geoffrey Rush, premiered in competition at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2006. In addition to the adaptation, Davies has a one-line role in the film, as a milkman, and is director of the making-of documentary Diary of a Milkman.

His volume Absloute Event Horizon was shortlisted for the National Book Council Poetry Prize. Running With Light won the 2000 Judith Wright Poetry Prize at the Queensland Premier's Literary Awards.

Davies is currently writing several screenplays, his next novel, another volume of poetry and a play for the Sydney Theatre Company's Wharf 2 Loud Program. As writer/director he is developing a feature film through the Australian Film Commission's Indievision strand.
