Michelanne Forster is a playwright, scriptwriter and author, who moved from her native California to New Zealand in the 1970s. After training as a teacher, she began her career as a writer, producer and director of children’s programmes with TVNZ. She played a large part in making the long-running Play School more relevant to a Kiwi audience, and later worked on children's shows Spot On, What Now and After School.
I attribute much of my successful writing and publishing career to the decade I spent making children's television programmes at TVNZ, where I honed my writing skills and developed strong bonds with many of New Zealand's best-loved children's authors. Michelanne Forster
