Just back from a month in Australia. Mostly holiday and an escape from the chilly English winter, but I also had a chance to showcase The Blue Eyed Aborigine and Forgotten Footprints, my two novels about survivors of 17th and 18th century shipwrecks off the Western Australian coast. Here I am in Melbourne, talking to year 9 students at Albert Park High School and on another occasion signing books at Dymocks Bookshop.
I also had a meeting with Pictureco who have a film option on The Blue Eyed Aborigine. I’ve now read a draft script and the next step is a pitch to industry to try and get backing to produce a feature length film.
