Author's Bio

Jane Va`afusuaga is a New Zealander living in a rural village in Samoa where she and her husband, Olsen, run an ecotourism venture and are passionate about conservation. They are currently involved in a community-based project creating a sanctuary in the rainforest to protect the critically endangered manumea and other native species of birds. Jane hasn't seen a manumea yet, but she and her young daughter are always on the lookout and are hopeful they will spot one during their lifetime. Jane's other passion is to write children's stories set in Pacific Island communities in New Zealand and Samoa. Azra Pinder-Pancho is an Auckland based illustrator who has worked as a visual artist in the Phillipines and New Zealand. Well known in the Phillipines as one half of the Pinder Twins, Azra and her identical sister Sam inherited their creative skills from their artist parents.
