MAREEBA-BASED writer Dick Eussen has released his latest book, ‘Stone Country Justice’ a turn from his usual non-fiction writing as this is his first ever fiction book.

His newest book was launched last Tuesday, December 15 in Mareeba with friends, family and even Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter in attendance. 

Mr Eussen is a well-known non-fiction writer who has previously published seven books based on fishing and four-wheel drive travel, all drawn from his own experiences living in Australia.  

His newest book, ‘Stone Country Justice’ is a novel set in Arnhem Land, a piece of Australia that is not widely known about by the outside world or the rest of Australia. 

Mr Eussen was excited to launch his new book last week and said it something that he has wanted to do for a long time. 

“I used to work on stations years ago after I left school and I used to do a lot of hunting and fishing so I got myself a little camera and that’s how it started off,” he said. 

“I started off hand writing all of my articles and if you had a good story to tell in those days someone would put it into gear and make it readable.

“I am excited to launch my first fiction book I hope it sells and it could even make a good movie.”
