Lian Hearn Biography

Lian Hearn was born on August 29th, 1942. Hearn is a famous English-born children's author and playwright. She was born in Potten End, Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire in England. Lian Hearn is just a pen name and the author’s real name is Gillian Rubinstein. Rubinstein currently happily lives in Goolwa, South Australia.

Rubinstein has split her childhood between both England and Nigeria until she moved to Australia in late 1973. As well as writing eight plays, numerous short stories and articles, Rubinstein has written over 30 books. Her hugely popular novel debut called Space Demons introduced her popular and common themes of growing up and fantasy worlds which emerge often in her other writings.



In 2001, Rubinstein published her hugely popular book Across the Nightingale Floor, which was the first of the best-selling five book Tales of the Otori series. She wrote these novels under the pen name Lian Hearn. This popular series is set in a fictional island nation that resembles feudal Japan and was her first work to ever reach an adult audience. The name Lian comes from a childhood nickname that Rubinstein had and the name Hearn refers to herons which are a common theme in the series.
