John Milne// Hauraki Group Leader & Writer
JOHN MILNE has been a member of NZ Christian Writers since shortly after it started in 1983. Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, he served a five year indentured apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery before doing four years with the R.A.F., two of which was active service in the Middle East. Arriving in New Zealand in 1957 as a workaholic with a passion for building, his energies were focused on designing and building spec. houses at the top end of the market in the Eastern suburbs of Auckland. Through this he picked up a few pieces of paper, Registered Master Builder, Woodwork Teacher, Trained Teacher, and a couple of others with Advanced Trade Certificate written on them. An important pivotal point in his working life was in graduating from Auckland Secondary Teachers college in the early Sixties.
