About the Author

Tessa Duder trained as a journalist and raised four daughters before publishing her first novel in her late thirties. Some fifty books have followed, for both adult and young readers: novels (notably the best-seller Alex quartet), short story collections, non-fiction, biographies, anthologies and plays. Her writing shows her deep love of the sea - in 2013 she crossed the Tasman Sea under sail on the tall ship Spirit of New Zealand - and a life-long interest in early New Zealand history, particularly of the Auckland region. Her awards have included multiple children's book prizes, the University of Waikato writers' residency, the Katherine Mansfield fellowship to Menton, France, an Artists to Antarctica fellowship, the OBE and an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Waikato. She lives in the sea-girt city of Auckland, New Zealand. David Elliot is an award-winning illustrator and writer for children. He has provided illustrations for authors on the local and international stage and produced ten picture-books of his own. His ambitious book for older readers, Snark, won two national awards and a White Raven from the International Youth Library. He was the Inaugural Winner of The Arts Foundation: Mallinson Rendell Illustrators Award. David lives with his wife Gillian in Port Chalmers New Zealand, where the southern coastline and its wildlife are a continual inspiration for his work.
