              Jane Carswell began her working life at Pegasus Press shortly after its audacious publication of Janet Frame's novel Owls Do Cry, and years later she went on to publish a book herself, an award-winning memoir about teaching in China called Under the Huang Jiao Tree. The road betw...een one book and the other was a rocky one paved with self-doubt and publishers' rejections, the experience provoking Jane to write again, this time about the troubled transformation between the private interior world of reading and the noisy exterior world of publication, between the books we read and treasure and the ones we write. She tried to manage this struggle by dividing her time between a busy life as a music teacher in Christchurch while looking after a succession of Chinese guests, and a quiet withdrawal to a world of meditation and monasteries. But publication continued to elude her, so Jane journeyed to the place where Janet Frame grew up to find the courage she needed to revise her manuscript one last time. Lyrical and literary, Talk of Treasure is a compelling memoir about how to be a writer, and more simply, just how to be.

              "Martha Grimm has a sorrowful secret, and her daughter Mary Ann is the only other person in New Zealand who knows it. Growing up dirt-poor in Willoughby, Warwickshire, in 1814, Martha dared to imagine a different life. Now she is a wealthy and respectable Wellington settler half ...a world away. But the cost has been high. Martha cannot speak of the past nor the people she left behind. Lewisville is a novel based on true events. It is a story of one woman's ambition, of escape and reinvention, and the bittersweet consequences of achieving one's dreams"--Back cover.

A teacher, musician and mother, she was burnt out by the time she reached her forties, and her marriage was on the... rocks. When one of her children was diagnosed with ADHD, a light went on. It turned out Julie had the same disorder and was on the autism spectrum too. This revelation changed her life, and made her want to change the lives of others like her, especially the children she teaches"--Cover.

              The morning she wakes to, the island she watches, the lover she adores - each one undresses or unwraps itself. For Rachel Tobin nakedness is a synonym for beauty. It is is also straight-talking in the face of pretence and disguise on one hand and the reality of sadness and death ...on the other. It is that gift and that curse: an unedited heart. Say it Naked is a finely wrought first collection.
