About the Authors

Picture of Adrienne Frater

Adrienne Frater

After a career in education, in 2005 Adrienne Frater took the plunge to become a full-time writer. For the first few years she also lectured on a tertiary diploma of creative writing. She writes for adults and children and her stories have been published or broadcast both within New Zealand and overseas. She has been fortunate in receiving a number of awards including twice being a prize winner in the Commonwealth Short Story competition and chosen to represent New Zealand in the David K Wong (Pen International) Competition. She has written many books in the educational fiction genre.

Adrienne lived in Nelson, New Zealand and was blessed with an over-riding curiosity and sense of fun which endowed her work with humour and energy. Very sadly, Adrienne passed away in February 2020.
