Picture 7

I live in the country near Bethells Beach (West Auckland) with my partner, artist Michael Hight, our two daughters, three cats and two dogs. I write poetry books for both adults and children, I visit schools, review books and write stories in secret. I have published eleven books and I have a new collection of poems for adults coming out this year called The Baker’s Thumbprint (Seraph Press). This year I am editing A Treasury of New Zealand Poetry for Children to be published by Random House. I visit schools and I like working with students from Year 0 to Year 13. I love reading, walking, riding a bike, swimming, gardening, cooking, watching movies, listening to music and of course …. writing.

I now run a second blog: http://nzpoetryshelf.wordpress.com

    My daughter Jeannie (age 9, Carlton School, Wanganui) wrote a poem about penguins recently, I think it would be good for a wider audience, so here it is to share…

    They waddle cutely
    across the ice
    Their body slides too.

    So free when they swim…
    I know who they are
    and hope you do too

    They are…the penguins.
