Author's Bio

A former copywriter with a degree in English Literature and a Diploma in Creative Advertising, Leonie Agnew now works as a primary school teacher in Auckland. Growing up, says Leonie, we and a lot of other families had a World Vision kid; we used to keep his picture on the fridge. My family went through a stage where we couldn't afford to keep a World Vision child. I was only nine or so, and there was nothing I could do about it. Maybe there's a tiny element of wish fulfilment in inventing a kid who can and will do something about it.
