Her work was first published in 2010 with the book Come Back to Me and since then, the Butler author has published another three books.

“I always hoped I would be published but when I turned 30 in 2006, it spurred me on to finish my first novel,” she said.

“I have worked in the book industry for 16 years, which has given me extra insight and understanding into what it takes to get a book published.”

All That is Lost Between, published last month, is her fourth novel. “It is the story of Georgia, who is 17 years old and is carrying a very dark secret,” Foster said.

“It’s also the story of her family, who can sense something is wrong but who are unsure how to help her, particularly as they are all struggling with secrets of their own.

“The story begins with a hit and run down a dark country lane in the Lake District (UK) and it’s this event that begins to force Georgia’s secret into the open and will end up with her running through the woods into terrible danger 48 hours later.”

Foster is looking forward to celebrating her latest release at Woodvale Library on March 10 from 6pm.

“These occasions are a great chance to get out and meet readers and chat to them about books and writing and it’s a lovely change since I spend most of my time working on my own,” she said.

Cost is $4, including refreshments, and copies of her book will be available to buy on the night.
