Foster read avidly as a child, but only discovered the joys of
writing some years ago, when reading to her own kids gave her the
urge to create a story of her own. Once she started writing, she
never looked back. Sheâ€™s at her happiest when immersed in stories,
plotting new conflicts and adventures for her characters. Elizabeth
lives in Sydney, Australia, and Esme’s Wish is her first novel.Â
