About Patrick Robinson:

Patrick Robinson was born January 21, 1940. He has since become a very well renowned British novelist and newspaper columnist. His most well known works are that of Admiral Arnold Morgan, who he first introduced to readers in Nimitz Class, released in 1997.

He has had many hits on the New York Times bestsellers list, both fiction and nonfiction. Such as Intercept and Lone Survivor, respectively. Patrick Robinson spends most of his time living in Ireland, but likes to spend his summers in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Patrick Robinson spent most of his earlier years as a journalist, writing daily for his newspaper column, which ran for many years. Then he finally decided to give that up and become a full time novelist, which excelled him to worldwide fame. Patrick Robinson also enjoys co-authoring books with fellow writers, such as Lone Survivor mentioned above, which he co-authored with Marcus Luttrell.

Through his works one can easily assume that he has a fascination with the Navy. Most of Patrick Robinson’s works all revolve around a naval officer. In fact all of his fiction books do revolve around a naval officer. His first series of books follow the above mentioned Admiral Arnold Morgan and his second series of books follow Navy Seal Lt. Commander Mack Bedford.

At least half of his nonfiction works revolve around the Navy as well. Although Patrick Robinson does branch out a bit and tackle such subjects as the financial crisis of 2007-2010. But he does have a fascination and love of military history, which can surely be seen through his works.

Whether you read Patrick Robinson’s fiction or nonfiction, he is an author that will always make you think, especially with his nonfiction. You will get his point of view and facts that he and his sometimes co-authors use to back them up. He has even been touted as rivaling the likes of Tom Clancy with his Naval fiction.

Patrick Robinson – A Sea of Novels

Patrick Robinson currently has over thirty works published, most only authored by him, but a few, mainly his nonfiction, have been co-authored with other authors.

A Colossal Failure of Common Sense is Patrick Robinson’s nonfiction foray into the events surrounding the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, which he and fellow co-author Lawerence G. Macdonald puts in context to the financial crisis of 2007-2010. Throughout the book Patrick Robinson shares his belief that the United States government should have saved Lehman Brothers. He also states how he thinks it was a preventable disaster and was caused by a failure of leadership. An intriguing book that, if nothing else, whether you agree or disagree, will leave you thinking about it long afterwards.

Nimitz Class was Patrick Robinson’s first fiction book to be published in 1997. The hero of the book was Admiral Arnold Morgan. Nimitz Class is much alike to the late Tom Clancy’s The Hunt For Red October. The plot revolves around a nuclear torpedo attacks on a made up aircraft carrier. From there it is much a game of cat and mouse and follows two separate storylines all the way through. One is about how the bad guy planned the attack and the other is about tracking down the submarine itself. It is a good edge of your seat thriller, that most of Patrick Robinson’s fans have given wonderful reviews to.

One Hundred Days, another nonfiction book Patrick Robinson co-authored, soared to the top of the New York Times bestsellers list. He and fellow co-author Sandy Woodward gave readers a fascinating look at the Naval side of operations in the Falkland campaign of 1982. Woodward having been there brought a knowledge to the book that no one else could and with Patrick Robinson’s added input and writing skills, it makes for compelling read like no other.

In Patrick Robinson’s new fiction series, the first being, Diamondhead, readers follow Navy Seal Lt. Commander Mack Bedford. His fellow officers are killed by Iraqi insurgents using a brand new type of missile. Mack Bedford takes down the attackers when they are unarmed and gets discharged. But he knows there are happenings about with these missiles and so when he gets a chance to assassinate the man behind the missiles, he jumps at the opportunity. A clever mix of survival and doing what is considered right or wrong, makes Diamondback another compelling read from Patrick Robinson.

Whether you are looking for books to enlighten you on past military history, or some other history, such as the financial crisis, you will find it with Patrick Robinson’s nonfiction books. And if you are just looking for a fun time with creative, compelling characters, you will find them with his fiction books. You can’t go wrong adding anything from Patrick Robinson’s catalog of novels to your bookshelf.

Patrick Robinson – From Sea to Sea

Patrick Robinson has sold millions of books across the world, he has his books published in over 20 different languages, but he has yet to garner the attention of Hollywood or any other movie/television studios around the globe. It is a shame really, as his books do read like a good blockbuster movie and with the likes of JAG no longer on television, either one of the leads in his books could make an outstanding series.

Although when his first book was released, Nimitz Class, Patrick Robinson came very close to getting a movie made of it. John McTiernan, director of such hits as Die Hard and Die Hard With A Vengeance, optioned the rights for Universal Studios, upon hearing rave reviews of the book. Sadly, the project died as McTiernan went through a messy divorce and his wife got the rights, refusing to do anything with them

But as with all things Hollywood, things happen at a very slow pace, especially if you are not a remake or sequel to some major blockbuster hit. But just maybe one day the stories of Patrick Robinson will grace screens from sea to sea.

Patrick Robinson – Always in Action

From his fiction to his nonfiction, readers will find something to delight themselves in with any of Patrick Robinson’s works.
