Jeffrey Harris


J.F. Harris was born in South Australia. A diving accident at the age of 17 left him a quadriplegic. Being confined to a wheelchair for the remainder of his life, he took to writing as a form of therapy. This was a painstaking task as he only had the use of two fingers hitting the keyboard, an art he perfected over time. He struggled for the last ten years of his life with respiratory illnesses that eventually took his life at the age of 61.

His fiction works include novels, screenplays and collections of short stories.

How do you approach cover design?
