About Jenny Harrison

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

Review by: Shauna Bickley on Aug. 01, 2012 :
Wren captures the voice of Charlie brilliantly and never misses a beat with it.
This is a wonderful adventure through rural New Zealand, with a wide variety of characters taking part.

Charlie is naïve but tough, and always tries to do what's right, even if it's not always seen that way, and mostly gets her into trouble. The climax builds to a heart-stopping ending.

Review by: Vicky Adin on July 12, 2012 :
I have read this book once before as a hard copy and enjoyed it then. Wren Harris has captured the voice of Charlie – alias Charlotte Mae Cromwell, aged 9 – to perfection. The little imp always seemed to be in trouble and misunderstood but through it all she wins hearts and minds, including the readers. The story is told through Charlie complete with all her naivety, tough background and mixed up words. Wren’s wry sense of humour comes across well. A good read.
