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 worked as a ghostwriter for 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 biography of Angus Young, entitled High Voltage, is now available in Australia and the UK, with a North America release in April 2018 and editions to follow in Brazil, Hungary, Finland and Czechoslovakia. I launched the book at the Thirroul Writers Festival on August 25 and spoke with AC/DC photographer Philip Morris at Rockdale Library on September 5. There's a terrific review here from the Daily Review and an interview with me on Channel 9's Today Extra. I'll be in Brisbane in mid October, talking about High Voltage and hosting a workshop at the Queensland Writers Centre. There's a profile of me in a recent Illawarra Mercury. You can read an extract of the book here and also read a feature from the Scottish Sun.
Full details of my various upcoming talks are listed here as well as images of some great street posters for the book in Sydney and Melbourne. I'll also be hosting a writing workshop and talking about High Voltage at the Wollongong Gallery on November 4.
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 Daily Review, The Guardian and A softcover edition of my John Farnham bio, Playing to Win, has also just been published.
