Jeff Apter

In a career spanning more than 20 years I've written 15 commercially and critically well-received books, including biographies of 'Shirley' Strachan from Skyhooks and Dragon's Marc Hunter. I also co-wrote the recent Kasey Chambers memoir, called A Little Bird Told Me, and worked with Mark Evans of AC/DC on his bestseller, Dirty Deeds. Kasey's book was part of the '50 Books You Can't Put Down' / Get Reading program in 2011, while Mark's book made NPR's best music books of 2011 list. In 2005, I worked with test cricketer turned commentator Michael Slater on his book, Slats. My other books include studies of Jeff Buckley (which has been adapted for a feature film), the Finn brothers and Keith Urban. My books have been translated into numerous languages. I was ghostwriter on a project called In Harm's Way, the story of a former Australian soldier and his attempts to emancipate two children in Lebanon. My biography of Johnny O'Keefe, out through Hachette Australia, has been really well received. It was the Sydney Morning Herald's Pick of the Week in their August 10 issue; likewise The Age and the Canberra Times. It was also selected as one of Dymocks key books for Father's Day 2013. Up From Down Under: How Australian Music Changed the World was released in November 2013. I'm a senior writer for Oz Rolling Stone (where I was on staff for several years) and also write for South Coast Style and the Sydney Morning Herald. I was the music reviewer for The Bulletin for many years and was a senior writer for Vogue. I also contribute to on-line mag the Hoopla. I'm on Facebook and can also be reached through this site. I'm represented by literary agency Curtis Brown. See www.jeffapter.com.au
