About the Author

Kathy Derrick and Jac Jenkins grew up on a dairy farm near Maungatapere, New Zealand. They both now live in the Far North, where Jac's chickens pretend they are poets, and Kathy's cat's attempts at writing are promptly deleted. Both graduated with Masters degrees in creative writing within twelve months of each other and their work has appeared in various periodicals, anthologies, blogs and websites. This is their first collection.

Their joint imaginations run amok in this conjuring trick of a collection - at times wicked bitch brutal, at other times fairy modmother magical. But always superbly crafted nuggets of hypnogogia.He pukapuka iti rawa." - Vaughan Rapatahana
