New Plymouth author Steph Matuku wants more kids to be able to read stories set in Aotearoa, a world they live in. While she waited for her science fiction young adult novel Flight of the Fantail to be edited, she wrote another, Whetū Toa and the Magician, a chapter book for 8 - 11 year olds. Steph tells Megan how she pulled off the feat of writing not one, but two debut novels almost simultaneously.
