Convicts Contest – we have a winner

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

She Who Must Be Obeyed picking the winner from the Topee Hat of Extreme Britishness.

And a big thank you to all who entered – with special mention and shout-out to –

Bev Robitai and the Mairangi Mob:

Lemuel Lyes:

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.
