Elizabeth Foster read avidly as a child, but only discovered the joys of writing some years ago, when reading to her own children reminded her how much she missed getting lost in other worlds. Once she started writing, she never looked back. Elizabeth lives in Sydney, Australia, where she is hard at work on the third and last novel in the Esme series. Much of her inspiration comes from nature, especially the ocean.
Her first novel, Esme's Wish, has been enjoyed by readers around the world, and recently won a Purple Dragonfly award, which recognises excellence in children's literature. A fantasy tale full of myth, mystery and magic, Esme's Wish charts the adventures of fifteen-year-old Esme Silver as she searches for her missing mother.
Esme's Gift, the sequel to Esme's Wish, is out now, and here's an early reader review.
'Esme's Gift is much more action packed than its successor, Esme's Wish, but still doesn't lose the enchanting feel. Fans of Harry Potter will love this book for its similar themes. More of the magical city of Esperance is described in detail and just makes you yearn to live there! The genuine friendship of the characters make this book a satisfying read, and hints at a healthy romantic relationship in the next book. The conclusion of the trilogy will be greatly anticipated!'
