Last weekend, the Bendigo Writers Festival was in town and I caught up with crime writer Michael Robotham for a chat. We talk about real life inspirations, ghostwriting for a Spice Girl, and encounters with the likes of Ray Bradbury and Stephen King.

For this episode, I decided to try recording outside. In retrospect, not the best plan. Apologies for the background noise.

He also has a Twitter and a Facebook.
