About Christine Brodien-Jones
Christine Brodien-Jones spent much of her childhood in upstate New York reading books and inventing fantastic stories. After graduating from Emerson College, Boston, she traveled and lived in Europe, where she met her husband Peter. A former teacher and editor, Christine lives in a tumble-down house near the sea on the Massachusetts coast. Now that their sons Ian and Derek are grown, she and Peter spend part of every year in Buenos Aires and Deer Isle, Maine.
Random House/Delacorte Press published Christine's post-apocalyptic novel THE OWL KEEPER in April 2010. THE OWL KEEPER is now in paperback and has been licensed to Scholastic for their School Book Club.
THE SCORPIONS OF ZAHIR, a middle grade adventure/fantasy set in Morocco, was published in July 2012 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers. "Brodien-Jones mixes fantasy and adventure in a way that would make Indiana Jones feel right at home," says Booklist; Kirkus calls SCORPIONS "a wild ride indeed" with a "fast-paced suspenseful plot." VOYA describes the book as "a ripping yarn, filled with adventure...and there are indeed times when it recalls classic adventure tales with youth appeal, such as Robert Louis Stevenson's 'Treasure Island'." It comes out in paperback on July 9, 2013.
Christine's middle grade fantasy THE GLASS PUZZLE will be published by Delacorte Books for Young Readers on July 9, 2013. She is represented by Stephen Fraser of The Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency.
