Kia ora – I’m Briar. For the purposes of this blog, I’m a book person. 

By which I mean, I’m an English teacher, a reviewer, an editor, a ghostwriter, a copywriter, an essayist, an occasional poet, an even more occasional publisher, a procrastinating one-day novelist.

I’m also a semi-reformed bookseller, most recently of Little Unity, a specialist children’s bookshop in the Auckland CBD. I’m a commissioning editor at The Sapling, I was on the judging panel for the 2020 New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults and I’m called upon to help out with other children’s publishing consultation and judging from time to time.

That’s basically me. Want me to do some word things for you, of the writing/publishing/editing variety? Hit me up at briar@briar.nz.
