Former lecturer at San Francisco State University, Ella Thorp Ellis has been celebrated for her young adult novels, six of which were American Library Honor Books of the Year. Married, with three sons and nine grandchildren, she divides her time between Berkeley and Santa Cruz, California.

Dune Child is a memoir in which she not only talks about Maer Baba but famous authors of the time, of whom John Steinbeck is probably the most famous.
Her depiction of her family life, her activist father, and the slowly sinking mother who Ella tried, even as a child, to take care of, is heart wrenching, even as the reader admires a brave child.
Further her prose style is elegant in the smooth readable way that looks easy but isn't!
I'll never forget this book.
