Women writers do better in New Zealand than they do anywhere else I know. They get published, get reviewed, win prizes equally with men. Here are some of my favorite women writers & their books.

Patricia Grace – a key figure in the emergence of Māori fiction in English since the 1970s and has made a significant contribution to contemporary New Zealand literature. Exploring themes such as loss, isolation and family, she portrays a variety of Māori people and ways of life, and is notable for her versatile narrative and descriptive techniques. Potiki (1986), won the New Zealand Book Award for Fiction. Patricia won  the 2008 Neustadt International Prize for Literature.

First look at the United States cover for part one of Mandy Hager's YA dystopian trilogy. I think it's gorgeous! Check out that little blood droplet!

I don't usually read YA fiction, but once I got through the first chapter I didn't stop reading Mandy Hager's The Nature of Ash and it's been on my mind ever since! It's brilliant!
