About the Author
Joanna Spyri began writing Heidi in 1870 and based many of the scenes and characters in the book on her childhood in the Alps. She continued to write tales about children who grew up in the mountians, but she never wrote a sequel to her best-known story.
Barbara Greenwood is the author of two young adult novels, A Question of Loyalty and Spy in the Shadows, as well as a book about writing, The Other Side of the Story. She has taught creative writing at a variety of universities and workshops.
