Kia ora tātou (hello everyone)

Welcome to my website. I am an aspiring author and poet of Te Whānau-ā-Apanui, Ngāti Porou, and Pākehā decent. I write under the pseudonym R. M. Waenga, but my friends call me Reb. Waenganui te Pō was the ancestral surname of my Mother’s whānau (family). It means the middle of the night in te reo Māori, the indigenous language of New Zealand. It has since been shortened to Waenga. Waenganui Pō means midnight. Like most artistic types, I’m a night owl.


Check out my services page for more information on professional editing and writing services I can provide.



I review two subjects on my blog; books and business products and services. They're kept in separate categories, but if you’re a fan of one, why not try the other! Most of my book reviews will be of classic Science or Dystopian Fiction. I might throw in the odd poetry or book essay.

Ngā mihi

R. M. Waenga (Reb)
