Welcome to my official Website

I am R. de Wolf, a Maori fiction author born on the East Coast of New Zealand and I love a good story. There are recurring themes in my work like equality, empowerment, love, hope, the environment and the struggles women experience. I grew up in the Bay of Plenty, lived abroad for 29 years, mainly in Sydney and London, and moved back to Aotearoa six years ago. I now live with my husband in sunny Turanganui-a-Kiwa/Gisborne. I started writing stories and poetry early in life so, at 53, I decided to get all those characters out of my head. Check out my debut novel Guardians of the Ancestors for a page-turning fiction story of Pacific migration, available worldwide online and in good bookstores, or click the View Shop button on the picture. The Future Weavers, my second novel, and Book Two of the Spirit Voyager Series is set to launch. Marama is back and becomes embroiled in an epic struggle - no spoilers! I also have a short story, Crushed Violet set on the East Coast of NZ before the outbreak of WWII included in the anthology Kaituhi Rawhiti - A Celebration of East Coast Writers.  The Goodness Algorithm, my third novel is being edited and I have a Poetry book coming out before Christmas. So hold on for the ride.  If you are overseas check out the shop for advice on the best places to buy my books. You will find reader reviews in the media section above.
