Fern & Rose meets:

Spies Publishing’s Renata Spies

After a fast-paced, jet setting career in the hotel industry, Renata Spies came to New Zealand with her husband and kids for a very different lifestyle. She has no trouble filling the day, though. The founder of Spies Publishing talks about publishing her 12-year-old son Ben’s books, explains why she stepped out of the traditional workforce to be a full-time mum and passes on her Nana’s sage parenting advice.
