Kura Carpenter is a Writer and Graphic Designer based in the small but perfectly formed coastal city of Dunedin, New Zealand. She volunteers her time for several organisations including a group who make and wear Victorian clothes to promote the city by entertaining the tourists and who also fund-raise books for children visiting the Dunedin Public Hospital.

Kura enjoys reading, practising calligraphy, doodling, sewing and constructing miniature furniture from ice-block sticks. A few years ago she was fortunate enough to adopt a retired racing greyhound and now wants everyone to experience the joy of sharing your house and heart with these gentle goofballs.
