Earthquake devastates Christchurch

February 23, 2011

Thoughts and prayers are with friends, family, and fellow romance writers in Christchurch, on the south island of New Zealand, after a powerful 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck the city yesterday.

Search and rescue teams from Australia have joined our kiwi friends to free survivors from the rubble, while the death toll continues to rise  in what has been described as New Zealand’s ‘darkest day ‘.

Best wishes to everyone at Romance Writers of New Zealand,


It is the second major quake to hit Christchurch in six months.

    Hi Suzi,

    A lot of ANZers are doing it rough downunder lately, aren’t they? My best friend’s a Kiwi and when I spoke to her yesterday she was pretty sure her family were OK, but there were no phones, so not so certain.
