Wen Baragrey is a New Zealand earthquake survivor who recently turned tail and ran to the other end of the country to live on a farm, only to find herself surrounded by volcanos, cantankerous livestock, and giant slugs. Don't even get her started on the goats.

To keep her mind off it, she writes books for middle graders, an age group she's never fully outgrown. It still comes as a complete surprise when someone expects her to make an adult decision or sign a check, and she hopes that never changes.

As well as writing, Wen has worked most of her life as an artist, the only other profession where it doesn’t matter if you forget to brush your hair. For fun, she plays guitar and sings, not well, but with a great deal of enthusiasm.
