About the Author

Little is known for sure about reclusive documentarian Elizabeth Haydon. She is an expert in dead languages and holds advanced degrees in Nain Studies from Arcana College and Lirin History from the University of Rigamarole. Her fluency in those languages has led some to speculate that she may be descended of one of those races herself. She claims to have a husband and children, but again, no one is really sure. Requests for information about her hobbies were returned with the unhelpful comment "everything except toothpaste sculpture." She is currently translating and compiling the second of the recently-discovered lost journals, "The Thief Queen's Daughter, " when she is not napping.

Reviews

Praise for "The Floating Island" A Book Sense Children's Pick for Autumn 2006 "In her first book for young people, Haydon, a popular author of numerous fantasies for older readers, uses journal entries interspersed throughout a fast-paced narrative to help bring Ven to life. Her world-building is as successful as her characters . A delightful epic fantasy that will attract a readership both older and younger than the target audience." --Booklist, Starred review "This completely delightful children's fantasy will charm kids and adults alike with its account of adventure, secrets and loyalty among friends. Fast-paced and populated with wonderful characters, this new series is sure to please readers looking for something different to read."--Romantic Times, Top Pick, 4-1/2 stars "Haydon spins a story both warm and thrilling."--Publishers Weekly "This is truly a stunning fantasy novel with well-developed characters, an exquisitely rendered world, and fast-paced plotting."--Di Herald, "Genrefluent" "Fantastic! Ms. Haydon has created something unique--a cutting edge curriculum tie-in to an exciting young reader's book, genuinely based on sound 'best practice' taxonomy models. A perfect fit for educators looking for tailor-made solutions that not only captures the imagination, but complies with the latest educational standards. Kudos!"--Carol Palmatier, Educational Grants Consultant, Michigan "The Floating Island looks like something that everyone in my family will enjoy. The author has developed an elaborate curriculum to accompany the book, and it's all free on the web .Something like this would be hugely valuable for a lot of people! This site is very easy to navigate and beautifully put together. There are even a few things there my kids would ask to do!"--http: //paradisefound.homeschooljournal.net/2006/09/08/the-floating-island-the-lost-journals-of-ven-polypheme/"
