Tania Norfolk lives in Nelson with her husband and two boys (aged 6 and 8). She has worked in education for many years, both as an English Language teacher and in public and tertiary library settings. She is currently working as a librarian and Information Literacy Tutor at Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology. Tania has been exploring creative writing for some time and says she finds the small and the everyday a rich source of inspiration. She is thrilled to have collaborated with her brother, illustrator Chris Norfolk, on Grasshopper’s Week, her first published children’s book.
