Heather Morris

Author, Australia

Heather Morris is an international number one bestselling author, who is passionate about stories of survival, resilience and hope. In 2003, while working in a large public hospital in Melbourne, Heather was introduced to an elderly gentleman who ‘might just have a story worth telling’. The day she met Lale Sokolov changed both their lives. Heather used Lale’s story as the basis for The Tattooist of Auschwitz and her follow-up novel, Cilka’s Journey, which have sold eight million copies worldwide. Three Sisters is her third novel. In 2020 she published Stories of Hope, her account of her journey to writing the story of Lale Sokolov’s life.
