About

I am a New Zealand-born Fijian/ Tongan/ Pakeha queer feminist writer, living in Aotearoa.

I blog about social justice issues, my day-to-day experiences, intersectional feminism, politics, gender, racism, culture, books, arts and activism.

I have a Phd in Sociology. My doctoral thesis was called “Queer Lives in Fiji”  and was about the marginalization of sexual minorities in Fiji.

I first studied creative writing under Witi Ihimaera and Albert Wendt in 1998. My children’s novel (ages 9-12) Josefa and the Vu, was published by Huia in 2007. I have a Masters in Creative Writing from Auckland University (2016). I am working on a poetry collection and some essays.
