Very much a self-proclaimed “writer of the ordinary man,” Mal Foster was born in 1956 and grew up in Camberley, Surrey before moving to nearby Knaphill in the late 1980s. He had left school just before his sixteenth
birthday in 1972 to help support his single mother and younger brother. Around this time he began writing poetry, and indeed, his first poems were
published soon after.
In 2015, whilst “reluctantly” approaching his 60s, Mal’s first novel, The
Asylum Soul was published. The book tells the harrowing tale of a young man erroneously incarcerated in a Surrey lunatic asylum in 1929. The story has proved very popular and has gone on to receive many five-star ratings on Amazon, Goodreads
A second book, the "clever" paranormal drama, Fly Back and
Purify appeared in 2017 whilst his third, the "explosive" conspiracy thriller, An Invisible
Nemesis primarily set in Gozo, Malta was published in 2019. Both titles have been very successful in their own right.
Amid much acclaim, his latest novel, Jude & Bliss, was published in November 2020 and marked a return to historical fiction for Mal. The book has already attracted huge interest
in the media, including newspaper and magazine articles, a radio appearance and a massive shout out from the renowned rock/pop singer and actress Toyah Willcox.
Jude & Bliss is currently enjoying a ten-date virtual tour on the Coffee Pot Book Club’s book blog circuit which runs until April this year.
