I teach, write and pretend to farm a number of feral sheep in one of the most beautiful places on earth - the top of the South Island, New Zealand.
I have three children, three dogs and a partner who spends around half of his time at sea.
I've done the usual author-y things – edited a literary journal, had the odd short story published, been short-listed for NZ literary prizes.
Children of the Furnace (published April 2018) was my first novel and it's already got a 5 star review!
'Amazing. Vivid and fascinating… nuanced and complex. An engrossing novel, but also a book that changes the way you see the world.' – Caitlin Lyle Farley, Readers' Favorite, 5 stars
'A compelling plot and great writing. Wil is incredibly sympathetic and Jace is a brilliantly ambivalent character.' – Roisin Heycock, former commissioning editor YA One World Books
Dark, powerful and heartbreaking, Children of the Furnace compels with a uniquely stunning world and one of the greatest characters you’ll ever be afraid for.
The second book in the series, Crosstrees, will be launched in Nelson on 21 February 2019 at Page & Blackmore Booksellers.
