Michael Robotham

Michael Robotham began his career an investigative journalist in Australia and the UK before becoming a ghostwriter, collaborating with the likes of Lulu, Geri Halliwell and Tony Bullimore to produce a dozen best-selling autobiographies. His psychological thrillers have been translated into 22 languages and have twice won the Ned Kelly award for best Australian Crime Fiction.

























We absolutely loved having Michael speak here on the Central Coast. The whole experience dealing with both Michael and his agency was extremely positive and professional. Communication was great – the agent was lovely to deal with and very quick to respond to our inquiry and very helpful and informative with any questions we had.
The evening itself was a great success, we had over 230 people attend the event, and Michael was an extremely entertaining and interesting speaker. He really had the audience wanting more, and we had a least 20 mins of question time at the end which we had to cut short as we ran over time. Michael was such a great mix of funny, engaging, intelligent and self-deprecating and really had the audience hooked. He was full of hilarious anecdotes about his life and work, and people he’d met along the way, which made for a thoroughly entertaining night – even for those who hadn’t read his books! He was kind enough to hang around and sign books for people for a good hour after he spoke which was very generous of him.
Since the event, we have had so much positive feedback – people absolutely loved it and have been asking for more. And of course Michael’s books are flying out the door still…
