About the Author
Célestine Hitiura Vaite was born in Tahiti. The daughter of a Tahitian mother and a French father who went back to his country after military service, she grew up in her big extended family in Faa'a-Tahiti, where storytelling was part of everyday life and women overcame obstacles with gusto and humour.
Her first two novels about the Mahi and Tehana families, Breadfruit (which won the 2004 Prix Littéraire des étudiants) and Frangipani, have been published in the UK, the US, Canada, Italy, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, Brazil, France, Germany and French Polynesia. Frangipani was shortlisted for the 2005 NSW Premier's Literary Awards.
Célestine now lives on the south coast of New South Wales. Tiare is her third novel.
