Dr Penelope Jackson (née Dickie) MNZM is a New Zealand writer and art historian. She has published widely, including three non-fiction books about art crime and copying, several artist catalogues, multiple journal articles, as well as having short stories included in anthologies.
As a teenager in the 1970s, the author lived in Singapore with her family when her father, an officer in the Royal New Zealand Air Force, was posted to the island. Those years, and subsequent visits, made a lasting impression on her which she has now developed into this collection of stories. She was awarded a University of Auckland Michael King Writers Centre residency in 2020 and was made a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in 2023. She has a PhD in Creative Arts.
