William Taylor is one of New Zealand's leading writers for children and young adults.

Formerly a teacher, school principal, and Mayor of Ohakune, his hilarious account of the unveiling of the Ohakune Carrot is counterbalanced by his experiences of chairing public meetings during the passing of the Homosexual Law Reform Bill - and all this in addition to the solo-parenting of two young sons!

Leaving teaching in 1986, he has written over 20 novels for the young and has lived for many years in the hills above Raurimu. His new memoir is destined to become a classic.

He talks about his life, work and Telling Tales (2010) with fellow writer Tessa Duder.

Presented as a part of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival.
