Ashton-Warner is a novelist, short story writer, poet, and nonfiction writer who often draws on her experiences teaching Maori children in her native New Zealand. Her novel Spinster is a vehicle for her philosophy of education, which calls for an integration of the inner and outer self before communication with others is possible.
