Book 1

Author Louise Maich has spent over two decades piecing together the previously untold story of her uncle, Frank Erceg, who is remembered as one of New Zealand’s most prominent deer hunters of his era (1950-60s).

Louise’s research into writing her book, Finding Frank, led to her contributing numerous articles to New Zealand Outdoor Hunting magazine and the New Zealand Deer Cullers Inc. newsletter. Louise has garnered several awards and recognition for her writing and, during the process of this book, established the Frank Erceg project blog.

Louise has previously composed songs and poems whilst exploring and reclaiming her Dalmatian heritage and history – transforming these into powerful performance art. Her ongoing passion for writing has led to her current penning of both fiction and non-fiction works. Finding Frank is her first book.
