              I am Tuhoe / Ngapuhi. I was born in Marton in 1963 and raised there till I was seventeen years old. My family moved to Palmerston North for work and that's where we have been ever since. My usual employment is as a supervisor in civil construction. As a child I was generally obli...vious to events happening around me and didn't really wake up to other people's auras till later in life. My nanny called it selfish. I just think I was half asleep. So five kids, five step-kids and two husbands later, I have become more aware and am full of the need to redeem myself to those that didn't understand me, to those that pissed me off, to those that I pissed off, and to those members of my family who needed me but I wasn't there. I wrote some stories with trepidation, for in writing them I was opening secrets. I wrote some as a way of sharing memories with those that have grown up hearing about the whanau but have never met or don't remember them, and I wrote others because they were worth writing. I write because I find it cleansing. Writing stories is easier for me than regaling them, setting them down on paper makes sure their content doesn't get mixed up when someone else repeats them. I write because my stories bruise my brain until they're written. They fell out of my fingers one day after I had been nostalgic remembering my childhood and my aunties, my nanny and my koro, and all my cousins.
