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 October 2017) is 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.
