About the Author:

Susan Price gained her first publishing contract at the age of 16, with Faber and Faber.

She won the Carnegie Medal, for The Ghost Drum, and the Guardian Fiction Prize for The Sterkarm Handshake. Besides Faber, her publishers include Hodder, Scholastic, Puffin, Simon & Schuster, A & C Black and Corgi, among others.

She began self-publishing in 2011, enabling her to supply demand for her OOP books, such as Ghost Drum and The Wolf’s Footprint. In 2016, she published her first original self-published title, The Drover’s Dogs.

Her first two Sterkarm novels are soon to be republished, with a new novel, A Sterkarm Tryst, by e-publishers Open Road.

She is a co-founder of the Authors Electric blog, where 29 self-publishing authors post each month.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-- Life is a sequence of choices and consequences. In Ghost Drum (Farrar, 1987) , a slave woman choses to give up her baby daughter to a shaman so that the child could live free. In this companion novel, a young father, faced with the same choice, refuses to give up his new born son. The offended shaman, Kuzma, the only character to carry over from the first book, vows revenge, and so a tragic sequence of events is set into motion. Kuzma's anger is directed not only at Malyuta and his son, Ambrosi, but also at a nomadic tribe who follow the reindeer. This tribe is visited by Kuzma, and although they welcome him and treat him with respect, he curses them and changes them all into werewolves. To break the spell and save the tribe, one of them must serve Kuzma, and help him to steal Ambrosi away from his fiercely protective father. Like the previous book, this one has the feel and flavor of old folktales, specifically those from northern Europe. There is a purity and a beauty to the language; every word, every phrase, is perfectly placed, like an exquisite ice sculpture. This is a must for libraries that own Ghost Drum , and even for those that don't. --Susan M. Harding, Mesquite Public Library, TX
