Max, a retired Magistrate and Coroner for the State of Victoria spent much of his time dealing with all sorts of people and issues.
This experience gained developing skills to determine relevance, research authorities and weigh and fairly assess evidence which has served him well as an investigative writer of historical fiction.
A Different Earth is an epic tale based on a true story of a resilient pioneering woman Jane Dunstan who successfully applied for a “free passage” from Cornwall to South Australia with her husband and seven children.
The book which is extremely well written brings to life with very vivid descriptions the trials and tribulations of life in the new country and all the hardships suffered on the goldfields to establish a home and raise a family.
Max answered a number of questions from the audience before David thanked him for his very interesting and enlightening presentation.
