IFWG Publishing Australia is pleased on a number of levels with the signing of the three-book young teen fantasy series of novels, collectively called The Ginomees Trilogy.
Aside from excitement of having an enchanting set of stories under our wing, we also achieved our goal to have a solid footprint in New Zealand – Ali lives in Matahiwi, near Masterton (North Island). This makes three authors now in our New Zealand stable, and with our recent hook up with a local printer, we are set for great things there. We have always wanted our Australian imprint to reach out to the UK (already achieved), Australia and, now, New Zealand.
More on Ali’s book soon, but here is her bio:
Ali Foster lives on a small piece of paradise at Matahiwi, near Masterton, New Zealand, with her husband Garry. She has worked in a wide variety of jobs including, equine groom, café proprietor, veterinary sales rep and livestock technician and currently assists secondary school students with learning disabilities.
Her first book, Elwyn’s Dream, (illus. Viv Walker) won the 2008, Random House/ Mitre 10/ NZ Conservation Foundation picturebook competition. She has two other picturebooks: The Eels of ANZAC Bridge (illus. Viv Walker) Fraser Books/ Wairarapa Archive, 2012. A Beam of Bright Light (Illus. Viv Walker) Wai Art Press, 2013
Ali loves fantasy/sci- fi and also enjoys a good dollop of mystery. She hopes to inspire young readers to find, ‘the hero within,’ In her new Ginomees trilogy.
When she is not writing, she enjoys painting murals, getting lost in her rambling garden and spending time with her human and animal family.
