Andrew Morton

As one of the world’s best-known biographers and a leading authority on modern celebrity, Morton has been called "the king of celebrity biographers."

He became an overnight sensation with the publication of his groundbreaking 1992 biography revealing the secret world of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. This seminal work, translated into 35 languages and a worldwide bestseller, inspired films, documentaries and commentaries about the royal family, changing forever the way the public viewed this ancient institution.

Praising Morton's reporting and insight, Tina Brown declared in The Diana Chronicles: "The journalist Morton most reminds me of is Bob Woodward."

Morton has since written half a dozen New York Times top ten best sellers, including four debuting at number one, deftly profiling Monica Lewinsky, Madonna, David and Victoria Beckham, Tom Cruise, and Angelina Jolie.
