Product description

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 in North Sydney and later 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 WW11, 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.

Her sixth book: Scallywag combines the best of both returning to the setting of WW11 with an underlying Australian theme.
