Her now classic The Girls in the Kapa Haka was published when she lived in the tiny seaside settlement of Maketu, the landing site of the great Arawa canoe.

Angie lives in Rotorua, New Zealand. Debbie Tipuna (Illustrator) Debbie Tipuna is a full-time artist and children's book illustrator who lives in the beautiful coastal city of Tauranga, New Zealand.
