EMMA NEALE is the author of two collections of poetry and three novels.
In 2000 she received the Todd/Creative New Zealand New Writers’
Bursary, and she is currently trying to land an ornery fourth novel
with the help of a Creative New Zealand new work grant. She works in
Dunedin as a freelance editor, as the mother of a nearly-three-year-old,
and as the helpmeet of a man born within formative whiff of the southern
alps. (Viz.: a mountaineer.)
