About R. de Wolf

A Māori fiction author from Aotearoa-New Zealand, R. de Wolf - Ngati Porou, Te Whānau-a-Apanui, Ngai Tahu, Ngati Mūtunga - was born on the East Coast, raised in the Bay of Plenty and now lives in Tairāwhiti.

Guardians of the Ancestors - Book One of the Spirit Voyager Series was released in 2020, and the short story Crushed Violet was published in Kaituhi Rawhiti, a local anthology, soon after. The Future Weavers - Book Two followed in 2021, along with Poetry In a Pear Tree de Wolf's third book.​ The Goodness Algorithm takes you on a rollercoaster ride of scary glimpses into the future, but it also highlights the hope and good that survive inside us. Poetry In a Pohutukawa - Reggie Reflections was next at the end of 2022, and Brothers in Whalesong - Book Three of The Spirit Voyager Series hit the shelves in 2023. There are two stories in Kaituhi Rāwhiti Two - Weaving of Words, which de Wolf co-edited, and a Whakautu in Ngā Kupu Wero Penguin.

Book Two of the Spirit Voyager Series

''We cannot always control the strands of flax that are held in the hands of another weaver.' The heart of the future weavers novel for me, here in a sentence. I am loving the read very much. It is again compelling, and the twists have me wanting to savour as well as read on. - Katrina Reedy Author
