Product description

About the Author

Since graduating with a journalism degree from Melbourne's RMIT University, Kathryn Bonella has worked in both television and print - writing for a variety of newspapers and magazines across the globe. Kathryn's forte is human stories, but she's covered everything from news to investigative stories, crime and celebrities. She spent six years as a producer on Australian 60 Minutes - producing stories ranging from Princess Mary's wedding in Copenhagen, to the Bali bombings. But the story that changed Kathryn's career was Schapelle Corby. It springboarded her from journalist to bestselling author. While working for 60 Minutes, Kathryn produced two stories on Schapelle Corby (for those who don't know, Schapelle was a 27-year-old beauty school student busted at Bali International Airport with 4.2 kilos of marijuana in her boogie board bag) - the first story a few weeks after Schapelle's bust, and the second was six months later when Schapelle was sentenced to 20 years in jail. A few months after the verdict Kathryn was offered the chance by Schapelle and her family to write Schapelle's autobiography. Telling the inside story - a story that had gripped Australia like few others - through Schapelle's eyes was a great opportunity. Kathryn left 60 minutes, and moved to Bali. The book, Schapelle Corby: My Story, shot straight to number one on release in Australia. It was soon picked up overseas and retitled No More Tomorrows. It is now an international bestseller. It was a natural progression to write her second book, Hotel Kerobokan. While working with Schapelle, Kathryn spent months inside Kerobokan Prison, getting an intimate look at what she first dubbed 'Hotel Kerobokan' or 'Hotel K' in Schapelle's book - because on first impression the prison looks like a cheap Balinese resort, with tennis court, palm trees, and grassy areas. And like any hotel, with cash you can buy room upgrade, or room service - drugs, booze, or a meal from your favourite local restaurant delivered to your cell. Kathryn personally saw and heard much about the bizarre, dark little world: violence, wild sex nights, killers freely walking in and out of the front door, days out at the beach, guards on drug-dealing inmate's payrolls and more. She spent two more years interviewing the united nations of prisoners in the prison, the guards and even the top security boss to paint a graphic picture of the hell-hole jail. Hotel Kerobokan also quickly became a bestseller, and is now sold in more than 20 countries - internationally retitled as Hotel K. Her third international bestseller, Snowing in Bali, was again a natural progression - after spending four years writing and researching the first two books, Kathryn had spoken to many drug dealers and knew that outside the walls of the prison, the drug business on the paradise island was frenetic, with a strong market of tourists and expats, and plenty of people keen to take an all expenses trip to paradise. Kathryn spent another two years researching and writing Snowing in Bali - getting unprecedented access to the island's top drug bosses. Her third book Snowing in Bali is today her third international bestseller. Kathryn has dubbed the three books her 'Bali trilogy' and they are now sold in more than 20 countries. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
