    Title: Tane's War

    One lifetime, two battles.

    It’s 1953 and Briar is a dreamer living with his father in Pukekohe. His behaviour sees him sent to a training farm to be “turned into a man”. But the plan backfires when his arrival awakens feelings in fellow shearer, Aussie.

    Tane is the farm foreman and his Maori heritage sets him apart. Briar and Aussie threaten the walls Tane has built around his own secret past; walls created in the trenches of WW1. Tane is confronted with a choice. He cannot change history but maybe he can help change the future.

    Brendaniel Weir was born in Auckland and has been an LGBT community activist since he took part in the Homosexual Law Reform marches as a schoolboy. He has written educational television, worked in the film industry and is a lecturer in English language. In 2013, he graduated with a Masters of Creative Writing (Hons.), also winning the post-graduate writing prize.

    His community involvement has taken him as far as Sweden, Thailand and the UK and he remains passionate about equality and human rights. He is currently exploring ways marginalised communities can reconstruct and reclaim their histories. Tane's War is his first novel.
