Constance Barnicoat (1872-1922) was sassy, strong, opinionated, brave, meticulous, and very intelligent. With a story begging to be told she should be celebrated as a leading journalist of her time, but she is unknown to most people - until now.

While she was born and brought up in New Zealand, Constance Barnicoat wrote for publications around the world, having learned her craft in London from the pioneer of modern journalism, W. T. Stead.

In A Cool Head and a Sharp Pen readers will discover details of Constance Barnicoat’s career as a multilingual journalist firstly in England, then based in Switzerland during World War I. Her contacts included the Archbishop of Canterbury, Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky, Georg F. Nicolai and, back in New Zealand, politicians Richard John Seddon and Sir Francis Dillon Bell.

An enthusiastic alpinist, she claimed several ‘firsts’, climbing some of the most treacherous mountain peaks of Europe as her form of relaxation.
