About the Author

Kathy was born in the Hokianga in New Zealand and spent her childhood growing up in the Waipoua Forest where her adventurous spirit developed. She became a teacher and spent most of her adult years teaching in New Zealand, England and Australia.She took up flying at the age of 38 and got her General Aviation licence when she was forty and became a grandmother in the same year. She has travelled extensively around the world and lived in Australia, England and Bali. She has three adult children and ten grandchildren. Kathy was inspired to fly from her father who did lessons when she was only nine years old. Kathy loves country music and did four years of community radio service as an announcer doing her own shows in Perth and York in Western Australia. Kathy refers to herself as The Kiwi bird who does fly.The Kiwi bird is now a rare bird in New Zealand and does not fly. The emu is also a flightless bird native to Australia, hence the inspiration for the title of her book. Kathy has also managed and owned a bed and breakfast in York where she loved to take guests for a fly around their 100 acre property. She owned two aircraft and this book centres mainly on the two year journey with the microlight around Australia. She ends the book with an update of her flying 12 years after that adventure. In August 2015 she returned to live in her hometown of Dargaville in NZ.
