Heather Morris

For several years, while working in a large public hospital in Melbourne, Heather Morris studied and wrote screenplays. In 2003, Heather was introduced to an elderly gentleman who said he ‘might just have a story worth telling’. The day she met Lale Sokolov changed both their lives, as their friendship grew and he embarked on a journey of self-scrutiny, entrusting the innermost details of his life during the Holocaust to her. Heather originally wrote Lale’s story as a screenplay before reshaping it into her debut novel, The Tattooist of Auschwitz
