Read full description of the books The Scorpions of Zahir:Zagora Pym has always wanted to be a desert explorer. Her father, Charlie Pym, is exactly that, and she's always loved to look over his maps of far away exotic places. One day she'd be trekking through the deserts of Africa and China, discovering hidden treasures from lost tribes. But Zagora would never have guessed that her chance to prove herself would come so soon. Like most adventures, it starts with a mysterious letter. The question is, how will this adventure end?
Zagora's dreams of desert exploration are about to come ture, but are she and her father and brother being followed? And will they ever make it back to civilization?
Read information about the authorI've always been drawn to the mysterious “other worlds” we inhabit as children: the invisible secret worlds that adults never seem to notice. Much of my childhood was spent immersed in books (the library was just around the corner) and I wrote my first story at age seven about a girl and a dragon.
Branches of trees were the best places to read books. My favorites were fairy tales, fantasy and science-fiction, including books by Edward Eager, Astrid Lindgren, Ray Bradbury and Madeleine L’Engle. Years later I would read these same stories to my sons Ian and Derek.
After studying creative writing at Emerson College, Boston, I traveled and lived in Almeria (Spain), London and Amsterdam. I met my husband Peter, a native of Wales, while traveling and we raised our two boys in New England. Over the years I've worked as a free-lance journalist, an editor and a teacher.
I'm the author of the post-apocalyptic fantasy THE OWL KEEPER (Delacorte Press, 2010)and THE SCORPIONS OF ZAHIR (Delacorte Books for Young Readers, 2012). Delacorte will publish my next book, THE GLASS PUZZLE, in June 2013. I'm represented by Stephen Fraser of the Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency.
When I’m not writing, I love to sail, read, hike and explore distant corners of Argentina. Peter and I divide our time between Gloucester, Massachusetts and an old country house in Deer Isle, Maine. We spend our winters in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
