James Phelan is the Melbourne-based award-winning and bestselling author of twenty-seven novels and one work of non-fiction. He has been a full-time novelist since the age of twenty-five, and through his publishers Hachette and Scholastic he has sold over four million copies world-wide. From his teens he wanted to be a novelist but first tried his hand at a “real job”, studying and working in architecture before turning to English literature, spending five years at The Age, and obtaining an MA (Writing) and PhD (YA literature).

He has written five geo-political thrillers featuring ex-Australian Navy operative turned investigate reporter Lachlan Fox: FOX HUNT, PATRIOT ACT, BLOOD OIL, LIQUID GOLD and RED ICE, as well as the ALONE trilogy of YA post-apocalyptic novels. In 2013/2014, Scholastic published James' thirteen-book adventure series titled THE LAST THIRTEEN. A sequel is being published September 2017. 2013 saw the publication of THE SPY, the first instalment in a series of suspense thrillers, and is followed by THE HUNTED, KILL SWITCH, and DARK HEART. Featuring ex-Air Force and CIA officer Jed Walker, the critically-acclaimed series is James’ most successful to date. He is currently working on two more instalments.

A passionate advocate of promoting literacy and a love of reading, James is a highly sought-after speaker at literary events and schools across all age levels.

James and Jeff are old mates, having spoken together at literary events around the world, and they collaborated on the serialised thrillers WATCHLIST and THE COPPER BRACELET.
