Gayle Cook

Gayle Cook is a software developer by trade, a thinker by nature, a creative science writer by nurture and a melanoma survivor.  She strives to write quirky stories about serious environmental topics, and her friends describe her writing voice as thoughtful with an ironic undertone.
The Royal Society of NZ short-listed her Being Blue story for the 2011 Manhire Prize for Creative Science Writing. The Christchurch Press published her story about the Lyttelton Marina disaster, Boating NZ Magazine a non-fiction sailing article and the NZ Poetry Society, her haiku about the Christchurch earthquakes.
