More About the Author

Kristiana Gregory grew up in Manhattan Beach, California, two blocks from the ocean. She's always loved to make up stories [ask her family!], telling her younger siblings whoppers that would leave them wide-eyed and shivering. Her first rejection letter at age ten was for a poem she wrote in class when she was supposed to be doing a math assignment. She's had a myriad of odd jobs: telephone operator, lifeguard, camp counselor, reporter, book reviewer & columnist for the LA Times, and finally author.

Her award-winning books include STALKED, which earned the 2012 Gold Medal for Young Adult Mystery from Literary Classics and is hailed as "historical fiction with a thrilling twist." KIRKUS calls it "an atmospheric confection that will thrill YA readers ... Gregory achieves a realistic, rich atmosphere with insightful details about the immigration process and New York tenements in the early 1900s." Now available on Kindle and in paperback.

JENNY OF THE TETONS [Harcourt] won the Golden Kite Award in 1989 and was the first of two-dozen historical novels for middle grade readers. Several of Kristiana's titles are now available on Kindle including "Curiously Odd Stories: Vol. 1 and Vol. 2" with the celebrated 'Paper Monument', a futuristic book-banning with horrific consequences.

BRONTE'S BOOK CLUB [Holiday House] is set in a town by the sea and is inspired by the girls' book club Kristiana led for several years.

Her most recent title with Scholastic's Dear America series is CANNONS AT DAWN, a sequel to the best-selling THE WINTER OF RED SNOW, which was made into a movie for the HBO Family Channel.

New re-releases in ebooks and paperback on Amazon:
**PRAIRIE RIVER SERIES #1-4
**ORPHAN RUNAWAYS: THE PERILOUS ESCAPE TO BODIE
**CABIN CREEK MYSTERIES #7: THE PHANTOM OF HIDDEN HORSE RANCH
**THE WAITING LIGHT: CLEMENTINE'S STORY -- originally titled "My Darlin' Clementine" [Holiday House] this riveting historical mystery takes place in an Idaho mining camp of 1866, and was Idaho's representative for the 2010 National Book Festival in Washington, D.C., sponsored by the Library of Congress.

Kristiana and her husband have two adult sons, and live in Idaho with their two golden retrievers. In her spare time she loves to swim, walk, hike, read, and hang out with friends. She's trying to learn to knit, but isn't yet having much success.

Format: Paperback
I am a mom of 4 boys and have been looking for something to read to them over the summer break. I just finished all of the books out in this series and have to say that these are some of my favorites!! Not only do they keep your interest, but the characters are wonderful. They are realistic and endearing without being harsh~ A breath of fresh air from some of the crude, commercialized stuff out there.
Two brothers, Jeff and David along with their cousin Claire have all sorts of wonderful adventures along with their dogs~ canoeing on the lake, secret hideouts in the woods, intriguing clues, riding bikes and hiking, using walkie talkies and camping. They even rig up a pulley system from their fort to their look-out tree for transporting snacks. I was laughing about one of the brothers because he usually sleeps in his clothes and ends up with his shirt on inside-out and backwards... something that happens regularly at our house. :) There is an old man in the series the children call Mr. Wellback, because he begins all of his stories with "Well, back in my day...".
My boys like it because of the adventure and mystery (me too! :). I especially appreciate the values of kindness, loyalty, responsibility, honesty, forgiveness and true friendship that has been woven within the adventures! Thank you so much K. Gregory!!!

Dr. E.'s Class just finished this book(2008)!
Do you like mysteries???? Then this book is for you!Who do you think the skeleton on the front cover is......? If you read this book you will uncover many clues to solve the mystery of the skeleton and mystery of the robber's cave. The characters discover the island, but do they find the cave? Read this book to find out and to solve what's the old man's terrible sadness. Enjoy the quest and good luck solving the many mysteries.
