Glenys Stace

Glenys_Stace.jpgGlenys Stace’s years working with marine environments at the Auckland Museum and with the Aquarium of New Zealand have given her a strong background in this area. Glenys decided to start writing because the books she needed for her job weren't available. Her work facilitating Auckland Museum's children's discovery centres helps her connect with her books' readers.
