Off to Australia shortly where I’ll meet with the film producer and scriptwriter who have taken out an option on the film rights to my book ’The Blue Eyed Aborigine’ about the ill-fated ship Batavia, its shipwreck and the subsequent mutiny and massacre - and my take on what may have happened to the two young men who were marooned on the West coast, 150 years before Captain Cook landed on the East coast.  

Beacon Island, Western Australia where the Batavia was shipwrecked and where the appalling events of 1629 took place
