She has published eight books with New Holland including Call of the Kokako, Eruption!

Maria has a background in Primary School teaching and now writes full-time from her lifestyle block in Matakana. Marco Ivancic is a freelance illustrator who has a broad portfolio that includes fantasy and science fiction work.
