About the Author

Deryn Mansell has been fascinated by the history of Java ever since she visited Yogyakarta as a seventeen year old and experienced first-hand the majestic Prambanan and Borobudur temples. That visit motivated her to continue studying Indonesian and she has returned to Java many times since as a student, as a teacher and as a traveller. In her working life, Deryn has been a teacher of Indonesian in Australia, a teacher of English in Indonesia, a researcher of language and intercultural communication and a coordinator of Asia literate business-people volunteering in Australian schools. Tiger Stone is her first book.

Reviews

Deryn Mansell's first novel moves at a good pace and reveals her love of Indonesian history, culture and language. -- Reading Time * Reading Time *
Tiger Stone not only represents a significant step in the right direction in encouraging an interest among young Australians and other English-speaking youth in Indonesia's language, history and culture, but also serves as a reminder of the unique ability storytelling has in breaking down barriers and cultural stereotypes. * Inside Indonesia *
I hadn't known anything much about Tiger Stone. I'd seen the cover at the conference, and I knew the book was set in Indonesia in the 14th century. A place and time I knew almost nothing about. Then Tiger Stone arrived in the mail, and when I began to read it, I didn't want to stop. It wasn't just that it was a good, tricky mystery with two very engaging main characters. The pages were opening onto a time and place I knew nothing about...and that was exciting. -- Susan Green
This is a great book for readers aged 12+ who are learning Indonesian, as some traditional words are used throughout the text and explained in the glossary. The story gives readers a feel for Indonesian culture at a particular time in history, and readers will enjoy putting the pieces of the mystery together. * Books+Publishing Online *
An original, intricate mystery set in fourteenth century Java * Boomerang Books Blog *
An excellent first novel. The conclusion holds the possibilities of sequels. * The Source *
Beautifully, the novel evokes human life in that early time with all its kindness, ignorance, joy, festivities, superstition, terror and sorrow. * Viewpoint *
Tiger Stone is a very strong debut by a knowledgeable and talented writer. * Magpies Magazine *
