This collection of underwater photographs portrays some of New Zealand's marine life, including the Poor Knights Islands marine reserve, the last resting place of the Rainbow Warrior and the active volcano of White Island, as well as the South Island's Fiordland.
I live near the bottom of the world in beautiful New Zealand. I have been writing books about the unique ocean life around New Zealand for 11 years. Many of my books have been written specifically with children in mind. My husband Darryl Torckler, is an amazing natural history photographer. That's not only my opinion, he has many, many international awards to support that! We have recently collaborated on a new series of gift books, in conjunction with Barron's Educational Publishing (USA) and David Bateman (NZ). These beautifully produced little books are perfect gifts for loved ones undergoing major life change. The first was intended for graduates, and the second for those recently bereaved. Both are available on Amazon.co.uk.
Besides writing, I work as a university academic;I have a PhD in medicine/cardiovascular ultrasound; I love doing medical research; I like to spend time with my family; and I love being in or around the sea.
