from Ruth Munro, Plainly



Gay Buckingham has been writing off and on for the last ten years or so, mostly working at short fiction, which has been published online, in Takahe, and broadcast by Radio New Zealand. Gay has spent most of her professional life as a mediator in Dunedin and completed an MA in creative writing at the IIML in 2013.

The first extract featured in Turbine is a flashback to the childhood of Brett Stewart, one of the less attractive adult characters in a novel she worked on in 2013, Ruth Munro, Plainly. The second extract is set in the local museum, where much of the novel’s action takes place.
