Rupert McCall has just released his new book "Golden Soil".

For those who don't know much about Rupert, Rupert is an Australian poet of international renown. His tributes to special events and occasions have become highly sought-after and treasured for the indelible mark they’ve left on audiences everywhere.

He is the author of six anthologies of verse that have collectively sold over 120,000 copies. Equally at home in radio or on TV, his resume features hosting roles for CH7’s The Great South East, 4BC’s Sports Today program and CH9’s Weekend Extra. Rupert’s great passion for sport was on display when he was appointed commentator for CH10 at the 2007 Rugby World Cup in France.

In 2005 he was awarded the honour of opening the Prelude to the Dawn Service in Gallipoli with his acclaimed and moving tribute NINETY YEARS AGO and, in 2011, he recited his poem A FIREFIGHTER’S DREAM at Ground Zero for the New York Fire Department on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.

His popularity transcends all demographics and ages, from the schools he visits to the corporate and sporting functions that he entertains. He is a passionate Australian and his ability to share this enthusiasm with any audience is warmly received.

In the words of Rupert, "my intention is always to deliver a message that inspires and leaves people feeling good about themselves”.
