About our Authors

We are a collective of independently published authors, based in and around the Wellington region
and writing in a wide range of genres.​

The Underground Bookstore was set up to provide another avenue to showcase
our work to the public outside mainstream book shops.

Our work is professionally written and produced to the highest standards, and all our books are printed through
Your Books Limited, based in Tawa, Wellington.
