I am from Piha, Auckland. Am living in San Francisco at present for a while, with my husband and 3 children. I am a NZ trained primary school teacher and came out of my poetry closet in April, being a finalist at the Auckland Museum’s Anzac memorial competition with the poem ‘Some Hero’. Since then 2 poems have
appeared on the websites ‘Village Voice’ (for Anzac also) called ‘The Parade’ and ‘Musical Craziness’ debuted on the ‘Rip it Up’ website in early May.
