Steve Theunissen is a middle school teacher and young adult fiction writer who lives in New Zealand but soon to be Chile!


Background Information

 Through Angel’s Eyes, Steve’s first novel, draws upon his life-long study of the Civil Rights movement and the inspiration that he has received from Martin Luther King and from the Birmingham, Alabama child marchers. . . .

I have always been inspired by the courage, determination and dignity of the 

Birmingham child marchers in the summer of 1963. I saw in them role models 

for a generation that is in desperate need of positive peer role models. I saw 

in their heroic tale an inspirational, but little-known story that needs to be 

shared with today’s youth. In my main character, Angel, I saw an opportunity 

to present an example of strength, empathy and resistance to peer pressure 

that today’s youth could relate to. As a forty-something white man from New 

Zealand, the first challenge was to get into the mind of a 13-year-old black girl from Alabama.” 


Birth Place
Rotorua,  New Zealand
Additional Information

I have been married to Shelley for 25 years and we have two daughters, aged 9 and 25. In January, 2013 we are moving to Chile for 2 years- exciting bit scary!
