Peter Grose on 'Ten Rogues'

The City of Perth Library and Boffins books are delighted to present author Peter Grose as he speaks about his new book Ten Rogues.
About Ten Rogues
A band of convicts, a scoundrel by the name of Jimmy Porter, a stolen brig and a daring plan for escape...
From the grim docks of nineteenth-century London to the even grimmer shores of the brutal penal colony of Norfolk Island, this is a roller-coaster tale. It has everything: defiance of authority, treachery, piracy and mutiny, escape from the hangman's noose and even love. Peopled with good men, buffoons, incompetents and larrikin convicts of the highest order, Ten Rogues is an unexpected and wickedly entertaining story from the great annals of Australia's colonial history.
About Peter Grose
Peter Grose began his working life as a journalist for the The Daily Mirror in Sydney before becoming the first London correspondent for The Australian. He switched from journalism to working for a literary agency, setting up Curtis Brown Australia—the first literary agency in Australia.
In his 'retirement' he returned to his first love, writing. He is the author of three best-selling history books: A Very Rude Awakening, A Good Place to Hide and An Awkward Truth.
