About the author...
Jenny Setchell was born in Hunterville, a small country town in the North Island of New Zealand. She received her secondary schooling at Nga Tawa, completed a BA at the University of Otago, and has almost completed a Mus B at the University of Canterbury, majoring in organ performance. Although she has played organs in churches of various denominations for more than 40 years, her principal career has been that of a journalist for most of her working life. In 2005 Jenny left her job as a senior sub-editor at The Press, one of New Zealand’s main metropolitan daily newspapers, to pursue her freelance activities. These include website design and maintenance, (nzorgan.com) photography (organcalendars.com and organgifts.com), and writing. When time allows and she is not on tour with international concert organist husband Martin, she wrestles with the garden and their two Burmese cats.
