Charisma Rangipunga is the mother of three sons and is raising them with the Māori language as their first language. As a mum trying to raise her children in Māori, reading time was always a little bit difficult when none of the cool books were in Māori, so she started putting pen to paper. Charisma has written a range of books for both adults and children and is also composer of songs. By day she is a General Manager for Ngāi Tahu.
