Esther Wagenaar (born in Den Helder, The Netherlands) is the author of the SF/fantasy series Terra 7. The books takes place on an old Earth colony with the intention to form an ideal society. There has been no contact for 500 years and when scientists start looking at what has become of the settlers, they are stranded on the planet. The scientist are getting deeper and deeper involved with the residents who, due to genetic manipulation, look as extreme as the plants and animals on Terra 7.
Esther grew up in a creative family. Her father collected science fiction books so she came in contact with the genre early on. She fell ill and had to stay home in her early twenties. Her way to escape from the harsh reality was to invent stories. This led to the story of Terra 7, which was written down on 1022 A4 pages in nine months.
Only 25 years later she picked up the story again and sent it to Celtica Publishing for a text review. Finally in February 2018 the first book of the sf-trilogy Terra 7 Het groene kristal was published. At the end of 2019 the second book followed, Het Huis van de Roos. The final part, Het antiparadijs is scheduled to appear at the and of July 2022, if all goes well, it will be available right before Castlefest!
Her books are only available in Dutch so far.
