Jeremy Fisher

Jeremy Fisher worked as an editor and publishing manager for nearly 30 years before moving into rights management and advocacy roles. He was President of the Society of Editors (NSW) in 1996 and a member of the Board of the Australian Publishers' Association from 1998-2000.

As a writer, he was first published in 1974 and has written in a wide range of genres since then. Fisher's writing encompasses fiction, poetry, prose, reviews and critical articles. His novel for young adults, Perfect Timing, has been his most commercially successful work to date. In 2004, Fisher was appointed Executive Director of the Australian Society of Authors.
