About the Author:

Ruth Hatfield is from Cambridge, although she travels around a bit as she is a field archaeologist by profession. It's a good job for inspiration! Ruth has been writing stories for most of her life just to please herself; however, what she loves to explore is the way in which imagination gives us limitless possibilities to make our own lives extraordinary. In her spare time she eats books, gallops around on horses, pedals around on her bike and tries not to break too many bones.

Review:

If dark, layered fantasy reminiscent of Susan Cooper and Alan Garner is your thing, then don't miss it * The Bookseller (Children's Previews) * Debut author Hatfield weaves a dark and twisted tale in the vein of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book ... Hatfield creates an imaginative, whimsical world. * Publishers Weekly (Praise for THE BOOK OF STORMS) * This is really something special. An 11-year-old boy searches for his storm-chaser parents and unravels a shadowy world of magic, menace and a truly terrifying foe. Wonderful storytelling with echoes of Susan Cooper. It's her debut and she's most certainly a name to watch ... Don't miss it. * Editor's Choice, The Bookseller (Praise for THE BOOK OF STORMS) * A powerfully conceived and executed story that adds a wholly original element to the fantasy genre * Kirkus, starred review (Praise for THE BOOK OF STORMS) *
