Jane Higgins

Jane is a New Zealand writer of fiction and non-fiction. In her day job she is a sociologist specializing in youth studies, focusing particularly on young people in transition from school. Growing up, she read a lot of classic science fiction, fantasy and myth and she still loves to escape into the other worlds of these stories. The Bridge is her first novel. It won the 2010 Text Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing, was a 2012 Storylines Notable Book and, in the 2012 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards, won an Honour award and the Young Adult Readers’ Choice award.
