Wendyl Nissen

Wendyl Nissen is a journalist, broadcaster and former magazine editor who is the author of ten books, mostly about living a chemical-free, old-fashioned life. She gave up her corporate life 15 years ago and now lives in the Hokianga with her husband, her father, 20 chickens, two cows, two dogs and three stray cats.

Wendyl's most recent book, My Mother and Other Secrets tells stories of mothers and daughters, ageing, the way deep family traumas echo down through the generations and how uncovering old family secrets led Wendyl to a better understanding of her mother.
