              The idea of writing their own stories and poems in both their Fijian tongue and in English excited and motivated a group of Fijian families in Wellington to gather together to create their own book. Initially unsure of themselves as writers the group drew strength from each oth...er's efforts and the sharing of their work. Using their natural storytelling talents both children and adults wrote stories and poems that captured memories of family trips and holidays in Aotearoa and visits to Fiji. Many recalled experiences of village life and family back in Fiji and acknowledged that although now living in Aotearoa these memories still connect families back to their Fijian homeland. This is reflected in the title of this book Voqa ni Veisemati, which translates as Echoes of Connection. This book was published with support from the Ministry of Education Te Te Tahuhu o Te Matauranga and is part of the Read NZ Te Pou Muramura Writers in Communities programme.

              This book is an eclectic mix of stories that range from the beginnings of the NZ Police from the Armed Constabulary in 1886; through the political machinations of the government of the time and the Police Commissioner Cullen in their dealing with Rua Kenana, of the Tuhoe tribe in... the Uruweras in 1916; the sinking of the Wahine in 1968 and the subsequent police response. He also recounts in detail various notable murders and incidents that accelerated change in the New Zealand Police with tactics and administration. The story of the hunt for Stanley Graham near Hokitika on the West Coast in October 1941, and the subsequent shooting of seven people, five being Police officers further cements his view of the negative impact upon police attitudes and tactical responses in a somewhat negative way for the next two decades.

              Te Kura Tapa Wha is a framework for culturally responsive action. It combines the original work of Ta Mason Durie's Te Whare Tapa Wha, the principles set out in Ka Hikitia: Accelerating Success 2013-2017 and Ka Hikitia, Ka Hapaitia, and the noted locatives of runga, raro, roto, a...nd waho that have a regular place in Maori prose and poetry. When staff and leaders are on board, Te Kura Tapa Wha can guide conversations that will motivate action. It provides for incremental changes which are intended to be uncomplicated and applicable. The text is designed to be used by individuals or staff groups as an explorative exercise. The exercise enables users of this guide to first, conduct a needs assessment; secondly, to review what is being done; and finally, to identify where potential for opportunity lies. This book will help accelerate equity in mainstream education by improving staff awareness and strategy building around Maori engagement.

              Buddy Moon is the first story in the Grove Series but stands alone well-happily ever after guaranteed. It's a 62,500-word novel featuring Tom, an established big-city architect, and Lisa, a struggling artist in a small town, trying to break into the art world. Each story in the s...eries features a different couple's love story, but they are all set in the same small Texas town with a recurring cast of secondary and tertiary characters. While my Grove, Texas, is fictional, its geography is based on the real towns around Houston, the fourth largest city in the USA: Cypress, Friendswood, Humble, Katy, Kingwood, La Port, League City, Pasadena, Pearland, Spring, Sugarland, Tomball, Webster, and the Woodlands. All the other places I set my characters to, such as Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, Corpus Christi, Galveston, Matagorda Bay, and Port Aransas are real. Houston and Texas are steeped in a unique history and culture, such as Texas was a country in itself before it became a state, and I use these aspects to flavor my stories. Tom Jeffreys is an established big-city architect, looking for lasting love. He is no longer interested in the one-night stands he has participated in the past. He is tired of those. He works for his father and is going on a buddy moon as the best man to his buddy, Mason, who is marrying Olive in Hawaii. A buddy moon is when eight couples go on a honeymoon, including the bridal couple. He meets Lisa, who is different from all the other girls he has dated, but he has a past he doesn't want to share. He is instantly attracted to her. Lisa Collins is a struggling artist living in a small town. She is trying to break into the art world. She attended art school and is trying to make her art business pay for itself. She is shy because of what happened in high school but is struggling to change for the better-to no longer be so shy. She is going on the buddy moon to be the maid of honor for Olive, who is marrying Mason. They are going on a destination wedding in Ha

              12 True Crime Stories of Murder & Mayhem Third Book of the True Crime Case Histories Series (2019) As with the two prior volumes of True Crime Case Histories, I want to start with a quick word of warning. Most news articles and television true crime shows skim over the sticky det...ails of truly gruesome crimes. In my books I don't gloss over the facts, regardless of how horrible they may be. I try to give my readers a clear and accurate description on just how demented the killers really were. I do my best not to leave anything out. The stories included in these books are not for the squeamish. Volume 3 features: longer stories, photos, two bonus chapters and an online appendix with additional photos, videos, and documents. A sampling of the stories include: The Canal Killer - A violent psychopath cuts off the head, hands, and feet of his girlfriends and dumps them in the canals of London and Rotterdam. The Head in the Bucket - A drug kingpin chops off the head of one of his dealers and carries it around in a Home Depot bucket. Captain Cash - Another drug dealer butchers an entire family so he can take over a man's fruit shipping business and transform it into a drug shipping business. The Coffee Killer - A young woman, jealous of her rich socialite friend, poisons her by lacing her coffee with cyanide in a public coffee shop. The Arizona Torso Killer - A petite trophy-wife shoots her husband, freezes his body, hacks him up with a jigsaw and dumps his torso in a dumpster behind a grocery store. The Oxford Murder - A young college student strangles his girlfriend and crams her body into an eight-inch crawlspace beneath the stairs. Plus six more disturbing true crime stories. The twelve true crime stories included in this collection are dark and creepy and will leave you with a new understanding of just how fragile the human mind can be. If there's any common theme between these cases, it would be that many of them happened near places I've lived throughout my life. Thr

              An Unexamined Life is a frank and honest memoir by an 80 year-old author who looks back on her life as an expatriate in developing countries and her personal search for a sense of integrity, belonging and community. From her early unhappy childhood in New Zealand and Fiji, she fo...llowed her first husband to Hawaii, Iraq, Sudan, Vietnam and Jordan. Disillusioned with her marriage and international living, she left for London to join her lover when her young daughter became seriously ill. This relationship ended after living in Dublin and Yorkshire, and with a Cordon Bleu Diploma she moved to London on her own, eventually overcoming alcoholism and depression to find a new happiness within a second marriage. With her two children in English boarding schools, she went back to university and earned two Masters degrees in English and International Relations. Her interest in politics led her to being a parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Democrats in the election of 1992. She became an American citizen in 1997 and continued working for the Democrats in California. After the death of her husband, she moved from Santa Barbara, California to the Ojai Valley where she created an outstanding garden, and then to Colorado to be close to her son and grandchildren. Over the years, she has worked as a medical laboratory technician, a radio journalist, a chef and restaurant manager, a dance teacher, elementary school teacher and Visiting Angel. Now retired in Albuquerque, New Mexico she enjoys writing and the company of her two small dogs. Her memoir recounts her journey with sometimes painful introspection to the point where she can say that an examined life is the only life worth living.
