About Jack

Jack Heath is the award-winning author of thirty thrillers, including Hangman (for adults) and the Liars series (for children). His novels have been translated into seven languages and adapted for film.

Jack wrote his first manuscript in high school. It was selected from a slush pile and published while he was still a teenager. The book soon became an international success.

In the course of his research, Jack has toured morgues and prisons, performed as a magician and traveled through eleven countries, including Russia. His enthusiastic presentations at schools and festivals have gotten thousands of kids hooked on reading. He lives on the land of the Ngunnawal people in Gunghalin, Australia.

He was the voice of bears, seals and foxes in the popular mobile game Rodeo Stampede, and he very occasionally writes opinion pieces for LoadScreen.

He’s a proud member of the ACT Writers Centre, the Children’s Book Council of Australia and the Australian Crime Writer’s Association, and an ambassador for the ACT Chief Minister’s Reading Challenge. He is represented by Curtis Brown Australia, and does speaking engagements through Booked Out.
