An entertaining young-adult novel, starring a humanoid!
In spite of ambitions to be a Music Composer/Quantum physicist/Geneticist/Knower of Everything Knowable, Pamela Morrow (Ngati Pu) is a part-time Visual Effects Artist and part-time writer. She began tertiary education in New Zealand in the eighties, starting a degree in Horticultural Science at Massey University, but ended up with a BA in Music and Media Studies from La Trobe University and a Masters in Film, TV and Media Studies from the University of Auckland, where she also took a scriptwriting paper. Hello Strange is her first publication.
"It's an insightful looking into human behaviours and emotions through a non-human observer, essentially a lovely but dangerous romance with an insidious subplot full of future tech, action sequences and cinematic passages of so much depth and description it's bound to appeal to kids of about 14 and up . . . I thought it was absolutely fantastic." --Radio NZ
