ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Carly lives in Christchurch New Zealand with her little people, husband and fish. Originally from Lincoln, United Kingdom, she moved to New Zealand in 2009, and despite earthquakes, fires and the challenges of a pandemic, they still love to call New Zealand home. She has been twisting words into stories and poetry since she was little, and had her first poem published, a unusual tale of a bee, when she was 8. Since then she has had many poems published in anthologies and pamphlets. Despite writing for almost three decades, it is only in the last 18 months that she has truly given herself permission to spend time writing. The stories Carly tells are never restrained by reality, but instead aim to question what we know. She likes to seed endless possibilities for the reader to question and run away with.
