Bernard Beckett [ New Zealand ]

born in 1967, is one of the most renowned young adult fiction authors in New Zealand. Furthermore, he teaches mathematics and English at a high school, and pens school plays which are downloadable from his website. His much-translated novel »Genesis« (2006), set in a futuristic island state, examines the mysterious nature of consciousness and an artificial intelligence's ambivalent formation of will, which eventually may turn against its creators. He lives with his family in Wellington.
