The winner of my ‘Convicts Contest’ – prize, a copy of my book Convicts, New Zealand’s Hidden Criminal Past - is Helen McMullin.
Helen’s great-grandfather was a missionary here in New Zealand, back in the 1880s. You can check out Helen’s blog at http://www.conantstation.com/2012/07/09/of-new-zealand-and-my-bucket-list/
And a big thank you to all who entered - with special mention and shout-out to -
Bev Robitai and the Mairangi Mob: http://arrestingprose.blogspot.co.nz/2012/07/win-book.html
All their blogs are well worth a look – and if you’re a history buff, Lemuel’s got some wonderful stories, ephemera and general New Zealand history posted. Fabulous stuff.
