Hi, my name is Tania.
Fun things are happening!

My first picture book text for children, titled Grandpa versus Swing, won the Storylines Joy Cowley Award in 2020. It has been beautifully illustrated by Lael Chisholm, and published by Scholastic New Zealand.

September 2022

I had a wonderful week visiting schools and libraries as part of the Storylines Trust Tour of Taranaki. Click here for my recap of events.

About me

I live in Aotearoa New Zealand with my husband and children. I write fiction for the fun of it: to play with words and to follow the unfolding of the story.
