Diana has also written about lndigenous and race issues since the late 1970s, authoring several books on Aboriginal affairs, as well as a medical self-help book on how to deal with difficult pregnancies.

Whale Rock is provocative, stormy and sensual. Diana Plater gives us both human brutality and sensitivity in 21st century Australia.
