About the Author
Australian author, Paula Astridge, was born in the NSW country town of Inverell in 1958. Based in Sydney, she worked for Rolling Stone Magazine and the Newspaper Industry before co-founding a successful Advertising Agency and then pursuing her writing career on a full-time basis. Her first three books: Golden Boy, In the Way of the Reich and Kill The Fuhrer focused on WW2, respectively profiling the controversial Albert Speer; Hermann and Albert Goering; and the German conspirators of the failed attempt on Adolf Hitler’s life in 1944. Moving then to concentrate on the largely unknown role Australia has played in world history, her next two books: Waltzing Dixie and Bad Hand tackled, in turn, the untold story of the men from Australia who fought in the American Civil War, and the final solution to the mystery of Fletcher Christian after the Bounty mutiny. Both books piqued interest in the film industry and Bad Hand was nominated for the prestigious UK Mountbatten Literary Award by the First Lord of the Admiralty. Her sixth book: Scallywag and now the release of her seventh: Rocket Man return to WW2: the first, delving into the murky world of Allied espionage and the mysterious wartime disappearance of Flight 777 over the Bay of Biscay; while Rocket Man probes into the story of Baron von Braun – the controversial inventor of the V-2 rocket which devastated London and the Apollo 11 which flew us to the moon. Her latest novel, Deep Sleep is not just another story about the Titanic, but of the people whose lives were forever changed by it.

The challenging perspective that Astridge shares about the Titanic has parallels to any major catastrophe. How come the accepted explanation was that the iceberg was entirely to blame? It’s because that story was the first one told to an astonished public and it was a plausible explanation. There’s much more to the story that’s come out in the last 100 years.
This book is highly recommended.
Astridge also debunks the theory that the collision with an iceberg was the sole cause of the Titanic sinking.
You'll love Deep Sleep! You will find it compelling reading.
