Meet the Author

I only started writing in 1995 in my late 50s (yeah for us late bloomers!). Debbie’s Story - the story of childhood sexual abuse - was a huge hit when published in 1997, one of those books that appeared just at the right time and in the right place. It was second on the bestseller list for that year.


We immigrated to New Zealand in 1997 and in 2000 I co-authored a book called A New Life in New Zealand with my good friend Surita Nortjé. That has since become the preferred textbook for potential immigrants to New Zealand.


After that there was a lull when I wrote almost exclusively for magazines and newspapers, in particular Connections and Migrant News.


In 2006 I published a gift book called To the Child Unborn, a delightful book filled with wisdom and love which, I think, is the best thing I've done.


2007 and 2008 marked the start of my life as a fiction writer. I wrote The Falling of Shadows, The Indigo Kid and Accidental Hero - all set in the fictional small town of Panui. You can buy print copies through my website, jennyharrison.co.nz


I recently launched the fourth book in the Panui series, Rusty & Slasher's Guide to Crime, on an unsuspecting world.
