About the Author
With her bestselling books making a splash internationally, Kathryn Bonella, bestselling writer of true crime kindle, paperback and audible books, has established a global fan base. Her true crime books focussing on Bali, drug smuggling, surfing and Brazil have become compulsory reading for many surfers and travellers, especially those who travel to Bali and Brazil.
Kathryn studied as a journalist at RMIT in Melbourne, moved to London to freelance for print and TV, then returned to Australia in 2000 to produce for 60 Minutes.
It was a true crime story about a 27-year-old Australian beauty school student, Schapelle Corby, being arrested at Bali international airport with kilos of marijuana in her boogie-board bag that spring-boarded Kathryn from journalist to bestselling organised crime author. After covering the story for 60 Minutes, Kathryn was offered the chance to co-write Schapelle's autobiography, Schapelle Corby: My Story, with Schapelle. It went straight to number one.
Since then Kathryn has written three more international true crime bestsellers: Hotel Kerobokan, internationally titled Hotel K, which blew the lid off the notorious Bali jail; Snowing in Bali, a true life crime thriller about the island's cocaine dealers; and Operation Playboy, the adrenaline-pumping true crime story of surfers trafficking drugs across the globe and the international police chase for the organised crime gang.
In 2019, Kathryn and Schapelle updated My Story, 13 years after releasing the original.
If you are a fan of true crime biography books, mafia books, organised crime books, books about hoaxes, deceptions and murder and mayhem then these brilliant, bestselling books are for YOU!

Its very well written and I would highly recommend it to others. I have read it over 2 days, couldnt put it down!
I have always believed Schapelle was innocent and if her boogie board was found in an Australian airport it would never have been pawed over by authorities like it was in Bali. The Australian government needs to take action about protecting our airports and update the security of every airport if they haven't already done this! To think that our baggage handlers have used passengers luggage to transfer illegal drugs overseas, is unbelievable and people involved should be charged. Shame on our government for not protecting our borders. Airport security in this day and age should never be below standard. I have travelled many times to Bali and Jakarta and feel lucky that my bag was never used to carry illegal substances. This poor girl has suffered a terrible travesty of justice and her life will never be the same again.
God bless you Schapelle and I hope you life is now everything you want it to be!
