Keshe was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and migrated to Australia when she was two years old. She currently lives in Naarm (Melbourne) with her partner, two kids, and an ice cream-obsessed cat named Wasabi.

She won the 2020 Perito Prize, the 2021 Yarra Literature Prize, the 2021 Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction, the 2022 Victorian Premier's Literary Awards Prize for an Unpublished Manuscript, and the 2023 Uncharted Magazine Thrilling Contest. Her debut novel THE GIRL WITH NO REFLECTION will be out in 2024 with Delacorte Press (Penguin Random House).

I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which I live and work,
and pay respects to Elders past, present, and emerging. This land was never ceded.
Always was, always will be.
