Christine Hunt Daniell was brought up in the Nelson hill country.
After graduating MA (Honours) in English from the University of Canterbury she spent three years in Europe, working in isolated rural communities. While absorbing the distinct flavour and spirit of each culture, she became determined to capture New Zealand’s equivalent – a heritage or folk history we still tend to deny we have. We insist we are too young,; we have no trolls and leprechauns!
She has produced three books: Something In The Hills, Speaking A Silence and I’m Ninety Five – Any Objection?
