Michelle lives in New Zealand. She is a mother, a writer, and a doctor. She enjoys debating, and will quite happily explore religion, agnosticism, atheism and the Theory of Evolution with anyone who’s keen. Raised Anglican, baptized in the Pentecostal church, trained in science, having wrestled with life and death, Christianity, the Church, and God, Michelle has poured the heart of her discoveries into her writing, creating a fictional representation of Jesus and the early church in order to try to unveil and translate Christianity into our setting today. Through this new genre, which is essentially the parable, she has sought to express something of the deepest of our human realities today: our struggles, our flaws, and a potential journey into realizing our full potential.
From A New Kind of Zeal:
On a hot, humid day, Tristan Blake is sweating it out trying to hitch a ride past Kerikeri, up north. It is summer in New Zealand, 2030 – the temperature is rising, and Tristan is looking to get away from it all, after retiring from Peace-making army duty in the Middle East.
An old red Holden Ute pulls up on the side of the road, with fishing lines strapped in the back. Tristan goes to the driver’s window, and a Maori priest, Rau Petera, invites him on a ride to Ninety Mile Beach.
Keen to fish, Tristan agrees – but there on the expansive sand, trying to escape the rising tide, Rau and Tristan stumble across Joshua Davidson from Kaitaia. Rau follows Joshua back into the rising sea – and Joshua catches him a record snapper, with no bait.
Now Rau and Tristan find themselves driving Joshua on a once-in-a-lifetime road-trip down the centre of the North Island, toward the Beehive in Wellington. Joshua is reminding Rau of someone – he is finding a new kind of faith. But Tristan is being thrown into increasing confusion and dismay, when he finally realizes what he must do to end the growing threat of Joshua.
