Queen of Deception is the biography of a woman who has fooled most people all of the time. A successful journalist and best selling author, Daisy Bates finessed her dishonest writing skills to create her persona. Her image as a welfare worker was so carefully and cleverly constructed that it persists in Australia's white history to this day.
After years of investigative research, the woman beneath her guise is finally revealed. Following her trail through Western and South Australia, Queen of Deception explains how and why Daisy Bates deceived her readers, her friends and the indigenous Australians she claimed she cared for. By forensically examining her Aboriginal journey, Queen of Deception becomes the biography of a liar as it gradually discloses her shocking secrets.
Coming soon: Did Daisy Bates really write her best seller, "The Passing of the Aborigines" or, incredible as it may seem, was it perhaps her ultimate deception?
