With a passion for research and a reputation for dogged delving in archives around the world, Dr Tom Roberts has helped journalists, broadcasters and publishers with dozens of projects.
Tom is also a successful author in his own right. His first book BEFORE RUPERT: KEITH MURDOCH AND THE BIRTH OF A DYNASTY, published by UQP, won the 2017 NATIONAL BIOGRAPHY AWARD, Australia's richest prize for life writing. The judges commented:
Before Rupert is deeply scholarly yet utterly accessible and enticing ... Roberts has crafted a masterful biography, full of remarkable insights.
His latest book, co-written with Peter Oborne, HOW TRUMP THINKS: HIS TWEETS AND THE BIRTH OF A NEW POLITICAL LANGUAGE, was published by Head of Zeus in May 2017.
Tom's next work, THE MURDOCH GENE, will be published internationally by IB Tauris/Bloomsbury Academic in 2019.
