Ten Rogues..........Live From France!

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.

Peter Grose began his working life as a journalist for the Sydney Daily Mirror before becoming the first London correspondent of The Australian. He switched from journalism to literary agency, setting up Curtis Brown Australia, then the first literary agency in Australia and now the biggest.

He is also the proud holder of British, American and Australian private pilot's licences, and has flown all over Australia, Europe and the United States in single-engined aircraft.

Peter lives in France
