With comedic overtones, Green Velvet Shoes, spanning the years 1880-1950, tells of the horrific England-New Zealand voyage of migrants, land obsession, psychological imperatives and black mischief by tracking the antipodean migrants over the generations.

1880. Part one, Last Voyage of the Flying Fish, begins when 400 European migrants of varied culture, motivation, class, need and character, board the Flying Fish clipper ship, bound for Queensland, Australia, holding Queensland government land vouchers which were issued to fare-paying migrants for farm purchase, but negotiable for other agendas. A voyage of disease, storm, disorienting fog, fire, marooning, becalming and shipwreck on a New Zealand fjord.

1920. Part Two, Laughing Willows, set in the Southern Alps, details migrant fortunes in the remote, inaccessible, high country, where The Keyhole Detective, sybaritic trickster and poseur policeman, ignores crime to be welcome at regattas, banquets and hunts. Murder, blackmail, incest, atavism, displacement trauma, and female subjugation, entwine.

1950. Wheeled Hut Dreaming, set in Laughing Willows, features an extraordinary peripatetic hut built for farm worker shelter and refuge for mountaineers, but, like the hut on fowl’s legs of Russian witch, Baba Yaga, is also a nefarious killing chamber, ambulance and hearse to avenge sadistic educators, effect social justice, and preserve Laughing Willows from subdivision.

Reviews:

The writing portrays subversive and rebellious characters and their relationship between a sense of destiny and inner truths against life constraints, history and hardship with avoidance of platitudes. Marginalised people have given Christina subject matter, an unusual view of the world and a perspective of considerable depth to develop powerful and original work.” Anna Maria Dell ‘oso

Reading the story was a most enjoyable experience. It shows wonderful originality and understanding of the darker side of human nature.” Chris Kate Catley

…a multidimensional mix from Fabulous to Hoffmanesque (Strewwelpeter) to horror works well to explain motive and possibility where church ladies conspire with an unlikely killer to avenge pedagogue sadism and the beautiful ramparts of the Southern Alps of New Zealand might well be Dracula’s domain.” Dr Anna Kassulke – The Word Story
