JK Ellem was born in London and spent his formative years preferring to read books and comics rather than doing his homework.
He is the innovative author of cutting-edge popular adult thriller fiction. He likes writing thrillers that are unpredictable, have multiple layers and sub-plots that tend to lead his readers down the wrong path with twists and turns that they cannot see coming. He writes in the genres of crime, mystery, suspense and psychological thrillers.
JK is obsessed with improving his craft and loves honest feedback from his fans. His idea of success is to be stopped in the street by a supermodel in a remote European village where no one speaks English and asked to autograph one of his books and to take a quick selfie.
He has a fantastic dry sense of humor that tends to get him into trouble a lot with his wife and three children.
He splits his time between the US, the UK and Australia.
