Kory 'Flight of the Kiwi' Graphic Novel
My two passions in life have always been rugby and art. Make that three, I love books too! I decided to make the most of the time I had overseas and began sketching, visiting libraries, gathering research and noting down ideas for my own book. My idea grew wings when I decided... “I am going to write a book”. Kory The Kiwi was born, 1996.

When living in France, surrounded by interesting buildings and lots of history, I was 'the Kiwi' on an adventure overseas. I went to play rugby and while there I had a lot of time to think.

I decided I wanted to write a book, based on a New Zealand main character, a hero that New Zealand children could relate to, and so Kory was born. Of course every good hero needs a sidekick, AKA Gilbert.

My experience in the design industry allowed me not only to create the book, but to self publish. I had the connections and confidence to write, design print, promote and distribute my book.

'Kory the Kiwi' took off, proving two things to me and others: Kiwi really can fly and if you put your mind to something, anything can happen.
