Holden Sheppard

Holden Sheppard has a blue mohawk and a blue steel gaze. He stands in front of a wall covered in street art.

Holden Sheppard is an award-winning Young Adult author born and bred in Geraldton, Western Australia. His debut novel, Invisible Boys (Fremantle Press, 2019), won the 2018 City of Fremantle T.A.G. Hungerford Award, the 2019 Kathleen Mitchell Award and the 2017 Ray Koppe Residency Award. It was also shortlisted for the 2020 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards.

Holden’s novella ‘Poster Boy’ won the 2018 Novella Project competition and was published in Griffith Review. His other writing has been published in Westerly, page seventeen, Indigo Journal, Ten Daily and the Huffington Post, and his true story featured in the Bright Lights, No City anthology (Margaret River Press, 2019). Holden serves as the Deputy Chair of WritingWA, and as an ambassador for Lifeline WA.

Holden has always been a misfit: a gym junkie who has played Pokemon competitively, a sensitive geek who loves aggressive punk rock, and a bogan who learned to speak French. He lives in Perth with his husband.
