Check out our sister site with audiobooks by New Zealand and Australian narrators
I'm Nix Whittaker and I think New Zealand is awesome but I also think we don't celebrate our writing as much as we should. So this is a completely unofficial list of New Zealand authors. I'm starting with authors who are alive and still writing. It is disturbing that the list of NZ authors on Wikipedia is made up of over half deceased authors. Other sites are difficult to navigate to find kiwi authors (Cough-Nat Lib). Some are completely fan-driven so are flawed because it only includes the big names (GoodReads) I've already got more books than are on that list. The only other way to find kiwi authors is to visit writers associations or go through gatekeepers who limit how many authors they allow on their lists (More coughing- Book Council).
If anything is incorrect please contact me. This is by no means comprehensive as it is just little old me. This site is a work in progress, so I will be adding things every day. At the moment I have 460 Authors and over 3124 books
To use this site you can check out the authors alphabetically and click on the image and it will take you to a gallery of their books. If you click on the link below it will take you to Amazon or a site where you can purchase the book. I have tried to put in genres but that is tricky. All books written recently (about 6 months) are on the Recent Releases page and for new and upcoming books check out the New Releases page.
