Hinemura Ellison

The author, Hinemura Ellison, is a retired journalist and communications coach who has worked in both the private and public sectors in the UK, Europe and New Zealand, giving her a front row seat to what does and doesn’t go on within the four walls of the public sector arena being privy to many an ‘off the record’ conversation. Having the ability to tap into good old-fashioned journalistic and coaching questions, pushing a few buttons and boundaries, hey presto – there is all the inside information on what is really happening behind the scenes and further up the chain…

Hinemura Ellison is of NZ Māori and European descent, and affiliates with Ngāi Tahu, Te Atiawa, Kāti Mamoe and Waitaha. She proudly descends from the great football player Tamati Ellison (1867 – 1905) who also was one of the first All Black captains who took NZ rugby international – to Australia.

Hinemura or Mu for short has always enjoyed reading from a young age and loved being ensconced in girls’ story books, Enid Blyton adventures, and watching good British murder mysteries on TV from the days of Agatha Christie, Midsomer Murders to Murder, She Wrote.

Mu has intertwined her love of adventure, and murder mysteries into the insightful, thrilling Trinity Trilogy; Sharks With Lipstick, Snakes In Suits and Scorpions In Stilettos

Currently, Mu is researching her next book, while keeping Ted on his toes!
