Jeff Apter

I'm the author of more than 20 books. My work includes biographies of the Finn brothers, Johnny O’Keefe, the Bee Gees, Marc Hunter, ‘Shirley’ Strachan, Silverchair, John Farnham and Keith Urban. I've ghostwritten with musicians, sportsmen, diplomats and soldiers of fortune. I also spent four years on staff at Rolling Stone. I was the creative consultant for the Helpmann Award-nominated 2015 live production, A State of Grace: The Music of Jeff and Tim Buckley. My next book, a biography of Daniel Johns, is due later in 2018 through Allen & Unwin.
My bestselling 2017 biography of Angus Young, entitled High Voltage, is now available in Australia, North America, Finland and the UK, with editions to follow in Brazil, Hungary and Czechoslovakia. There's a profile of me in a recent Illawarra Mercury. You can read a feature from the Scottish Sun.
High Voltage has taken me to Brisbane, Canberra, the NSW Central Coast, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide, where I've spoken in various libraries. A smaller format Australian edition of High Voltage is due later in 2018. 
And a new, improved, Australia-only edition of my Jeff Buckley bio,
A Pure Drop, is out now. You can read about the book at The Guardian and A softcover edition of my John Farnham bio, Playing to Win, has also recently been published.
Here's a gallery of images charting where I've been and who I've met. Life's never dull, that's for sure.
