David Hair is a New Zealand-based author of three fantasy series. The Aotearoa Series is a YA series published by HarperCollins in New Zealand. The first novel, The Bone Tiki, won Best First Book at the 2010 NZ Post Children’s Book Awards. The series is built around the concept of two parallel New Zealands—the modern world, and another magical world peopled by legends, historical personages, and the ghosts of ordinary New Zealanders. Hair has also written a four-book YA series, The Return of Ravana, set in India and published by Penguin India. Book one, Pyre of Queens, won the LIANZA award for Best YA Novel in 2012. The series is set to be re-released in the UK in 2015 through Jo Fletcher Books. Scarlet Tides, published in October 2014 by Jo Fletcher Books (an imprint of Quercus), will be the second book in his fantasy series The Moontide Quartet. Four books are planned for the series. David currently lives in Auckland, New Zealand with his wife Kerry. See more info about all his books here.
