About the Author

Witi Ihimaera is of Te Whanau a Kai, Te Aitanga a Mahaki, Rongowhakaata, Tuhoe, Te Whanau a Apanui and Ngati Porou descent. He was the first Maori to publish a novel, Tangi, in 1973. He has subsequently gone on to become one of New Zealand's leading writers. He is passionate about writing Maori stories and creating opportunities for them to be shown not only in print but also in theatre and on film. His memoir, Maori Boy, won the Ockham Award for the best non-fiction work, 2016. His play, All Our Sons, won six Wellington theatre awards and was produced by the Auckland Theatre Company in 2018. He has since published the second volume of his memoir and written an opera, Flowing Water, which is set in the Waikato during the New Zealand Wars.

Whiti Hereaka is of Ngati Tuwharetoa and Te Arawa. She is a playwright, screenwriter, novelist and a barrister and solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand. She holds a Masters in Creative Writing (Scriptwriting) from the International Institute of Modern Letters, Victoria University. She has had several plays produced and has won Best New Play by a Maori Playwright at the Adam Play Awards in both 2010 and 2011 and won the Bruce Mason Award in 2012. She has published two novels, her second one was for young adults and her first, The Graphologist's Apprentice, was shortlisted for Best First Book in the 2011 Commonwealth Writers' Prize Asia and Pacific.
