David Hair, an award-winning writer of fantasy, has been inspired by his travels around the globe. He was born in New Zealand, spent time in Britain, Europe and India (which inspired The Moontide and Sunsurge Quartets and the Ravana series). After some years in Bangkok, Thailand, he and his wife returned to New Zealand, where they are now settled (for the time being). His epic fantasy sagas The Moontide Quartet and The Sunsurge Quartet and the YA saga The Return of Ravana, his retelling of the Indian epic The Ramayana, are all published by Jo Fletcher Books.
