Tim (TJ) Slee is an Australian author who was winner of the 2018 HarperCollins Banjo Prize for Australian Fiction and of the 2016 US Publishers Weekly BookLife Prize for Fiction. He was also a past winner of the Allen & Unwin INK prize for short fiction. He is now signed with HarperCollins and his novel TAKING TOM MURRAY HOME is coming out in 2019. The Banjo Prize Jury wrote: ‘Taking Tom Murray Home is a novel that sneaks up on you, and takes you by surprise – and before you know it, you’re deep in its world and don’t want to leave. It is a thought-provoking, heart-warming, quintessential Australian novel like no other.’ EARLIER WORK Starting in 2016, TJ Slee self published several manuscripts to experiment with style and genre and gather critical feedback on his work. One of these won the US PW BookLife Prize and a second was shortlisted. US Publishers' Weekly wrote: "It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that indie author T.J. Slee took the inaugural BookLife Prize by storm. A finalist last year in two categories, Slee—who ...describes his writing as the misbegotten love child of Robert Ludlum and Janet Evanovich—had the top title in Mystery/Thriller with Bless Me Father and SciFi/Fantasy/Horror with The Vanirim. And while it was The Vanirim—a sci-fi noir mashup—that won top honors last year, BookLife’s judges were similarly impressed by Bless Me Father, about a former intelligence officer who left the world of secrets behind for life as nun. BL Prize guest judge, author, and publisher Jason Pinter praised Bless Me Father, calling it “Highly original, well-written, with an engaging, sparkplug of a heroine,” while guest judge and author Tim Pratt said of The Vanirim: "I devoured The Vanirim in a single sitting…driven forward by the twisty and mind-bending plot, centered on an enigmatic and compelling main character.” These and other earlier manuscripts are available as free ebooks, or at-cost print books, via the author's Goodreads.com page. WORK UNDER PEN NAME FX HOLDEN TJ Slee also publishes thriller fiction under the pen name FX HOLDEN, with his novel BERING STRAIT having been released in November 2018, and immediately hitting the Amazon technothriller bestseller lists in the US, UK, Canada (#1) and Australia (#1). "Impossible to put down. The action is intense and the plot unique. It soars along at a fast pace. This story is unmissable." - Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers’ Favorite, 5 Star Review. "Realistic and original. A fast-paced thriller packed with action and suspense." - Publishers Weekly BookLife TJ Slee donates the proceeds of his sales to charity.
