Lingering Doubts - Granddaughters speak in S.W. Queensland

We have now shared our grandfather's story with residents of both Cunnamulla and Charleville. Copies of Lingering Doubts - Going inside Brisbane's Arcade Murder sold particularly well in Charleville. Following our presentation of the story orders continued to flow in via our Motel Manager. :)

Thank you to the staff at St George and Cunnamulla Libraries and Charleville's Healthy Ageing Program (every town should have one of these wonderful centres). Older residents who grew up in Brisbane remember the 'Arcade Murder' and expressed their parents' doubt, back in 1947, that Reg Brown was guilty of this crime. We continue to meet fascinating people on this journey. Tomorrow we present Lingering Doubts to patrons of the Mitchell Library.

More photos will soon appear on our facebook page...

Lingering Doubts - pics from SW Qld. speaking tour

Our husbands Ray and John speaking about their Lingering Doubts journey and how they have grown old during this book writing process. :) Photo taken at our second book launch which was held at Delicate in St George. Another wonderful experience. The food and company was superb. Friday was a busy day, St George High School, St George Library event and then our evening launch.

June, the Goondiwindi librarian organised a very successful event. The tour so far has been fabulous. Cunnamulla on Tuesday. For more photos please visit the facebook page.

Lingering Doubts - Miscarriages of Justice Website

The article titled Story of Murder comes to Town published in the Goondiwindi Argus on 9 July 2014,  which promotes our western tour, has been included on Dr Bob Moles' Networked Knowledge website. Click here to read
Dr Bob Moles and his assistants work tirelessly in the name of justice. Bob and his committed team of professionals are currently advocating for Henry Keogh who was convicted of murder and sentenced to a life term with a non-parole period of 25 years. We strongly recommend reading Losing their Grip - the case of Henry Keogh by Robert N. Moles. The wheels turn painfully slow and we wish this committed team and also Henry Keogh the energy and the will to endure.  Our own grandfather was swiftly locked up and virtually gagged prior to his trial. Unbelievably  his notes to his solicitor were confiscated by prison guards. Can you imagine what it must feel like to be accused of, and jailed for, something you didn't do?

Lingering Doubts - Authors take their story to Queensland's West

Later this month we will take our grandfather's story to south west Queensland. This will be our first long distance speaking tour! Our presentations will commence in Goondiwindi (where Deb lived as a child) and then onto St George where Janice currently lives. From there we'll travel to Cunnamulla and Charleville and  onto Mitchell.  This week an editorial appeared in the Goondiwindi newspaper. It shows the path Reg Brown's son Ian (Deb's father) took in the years following his father's arrest, conviction and death in Boggo Road Gaol. Although Ian never really recovered he was blessed with his father's moral values and strong work ethic.
