Author Biography

Dunedin-based Baker (51), is no stranger to bleakness. Chris is a long time sufferer of multiple sclerosis, a debilitating disease. His time spent living with Maori in the Far North provided Chris with a cultural experience beyond his Samoan/Celtic/ Anglo-Saxon origins. It is this colourful mix that gives Kokopu Dreams and Shadow Waters a uniquely New Zealand flavour. An environmental campaigner, a union delegate, journalist, bush and farm worker, Chris has lived in the Kiwi tradition of 'give it a go ambition'. It is this ambition and determination which propels the protagonists in Chris's novels to move on from the bleakness and devastation caused by an apocolyptic event.
