Kia ora, I’m Tihema Baker. I whakapapa to Ngāti Raukawa te Au ki te Tonga, Ngāti Toarangatira, and Te Ātiawa ki Whakarongotai. I am the author of the YA sci-fi novel Watched and its sequel Exceptional, and a couple of short stories in anthologies.
I decided to start a blog to document my experiences as an author. The thing about writing books, though, is that, while it’s exciting for me, it’s not really the most riveting process for everyone else. So I decided I needed something else to write about. But what, exactly?
Thus, Tihema’s Dilemmas was born. It’s a blog by a guy who doesn’t really know what his blog’s about. I’ll be writing about anything that interests me – from current events and contemporary issues, to movies and gaming. Plus it rhymes, so there’s that.
