Andy has a lifetime of experience in conservation and has advocated at the highest level for wild lands in New Zealand for a number of decades. He has worked extensively alongside the Department of Conservation and the Federated Mountain Clubs in pursuit of this goal during these years and contributed to many national publications that showcase and interpret conservation areas.
Currently he spends two months a year in Iceland where he interprets for tourist groups who visit Iceland’s natural features.
Trish grew up in Franz Josef Glacier in a family different in all ways to that of Philippa Barnes. She has worked as a conservation interpreter in Westland, Abel Tasman and Paparoa National Parks, a journalist in Hokitika and, most recently, as an archivist in Wellington. This novel brings together her two great passions – crime fiction and the West Coast.
