I’ve been working up in the Pilbara in NW Australia. It’s iron ore country and the landscape is red as far as the eye can see. I thought I’d find a spot for a quiet read, but you’re never quite alone in the bush! Even though it was only 6.30am, it was still 36C and the flies were everywhere!! They’re pesky creatures, but hey, any audience is a great audience. Now if only I can teach them to talk and spread the word about Captain Scully, then I’d be a very happy man!
On Thursday 15th November 2018 I’ll be presenting Captain Scully to the people of Perth WA at a book launch in the Crypt of St Mary’s Cathedral. I’m super excited about this as it’s my first time to “perform” in public and share my story with a much wider audience. I hope some TV and media will be there as the story would make a great movie or TV series!!
Keep me in your thoughts and prayers and thanks for all your support over the past few years.
A film about Charles Dickens is always a good thing in my book - if you excuse the pun - and I’ve no doubt that one day some insightful film Director will be working on a script from one of my books, but lets not get too far ahead our ourselves!
“The man who invented Christmas” has been released in the cinemas and I can’t wait to see it. The storyline is quite powerful so don’t let the humor gloss over some challenging subjects which are particularly relevant in the current social climate. But in the end, its all about
And if you’re going to see the movie then you MUST get a copy of my book called Mr Dickens, which looks at another facet of the life and times of Charles Dickens, and which also concludes that HOPE is such a vital ingredient in all of our lives.
Let me know what you think of the book and the film.
