Nicola McCloy is a Southlander whose parents instilled in her a love of the great Kiwi road trip. Sandwiched between two extroverted siblings, she grew up spending a lot of time looking out the window of the Datsun 180B and wondering what was happening in the big, wide world of the South Island. Since then, she's made it her mission to find out, with particular focus on the mediums of pies, suspension bridges and transport museums. She has written more than 20 books, all telling different New Zealand stories and including the bestsellers Whykickamoocow, Made in New Zealand and The Speight's Southern Man Cookbook. Jane King is an avid photographer, who loves nothing more than getting out and exploring the beaches, bush and beauty this country has to offer - but not without having coffee first. In her other life as a digital producer Jane has written website content for TVNZ, NZME and Tourism New Zealand. Nicola and Jane worked together on the highly successful 2018 title Let's Get Lost.
