Marion Day



Lives in the outer Pelorus Sound, an area of outstanding natural beauty within the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand. Her passion is writing. She goes all out with it to the point that she’s a step short of crazy! But she cannot stop herself. For the past 14 years there’s always been a story in the process, or in the front of her mind.

Marion is delighted to be working with Kiwi and International Illustrator Richard Hoit on Elton the Flying Crane - a children’s picture book series beginning with four titles. Elton, the third biggest helicopter in the world, fights wildfires and carries heavy-lift jobs and rescues. It’s a super-exciting series and children are sure to fall in love with Elton and his friends, Connie the helicopter and Flaps the aeroplane bomber.
