I was born in New York City in 1964. My family spent two years in England and three years in Jamaica, and as a child I was fluent in Jamaican patois. When my parents separated, my mother moved us to her home state of Pennsylvania. When she died in a car accident in 1978, her wonderful mother, Betty Flocken, took me in. After getting a BA from Yale University, I went back to England, where I learned to ring church bells in the English style known as "change ringing." While I was working on my PhD in Folklore at the University of Pennsylvania, I met my future husband at a bell ringers' dinner-dance. He is British, and in 1995 I moved to England with him, and we settled in Scotland in 2000, which is where we raised our two children and is where we live now. I hold both American and British citizenship. I learned to fly in Scotland and took my private pilot's license in 2003. Inspired by this new skill, flying became the core theme of my writing over the past decades. I have now written numerous aviation-inspired fiction and non-fiction books for young people, and my best-known book, Code Name Verity, became a Number 1 New York Times bestseller.

Featured Article: Tap into Your Inner Jedi (or Sith) with the 66 Best Star Wars Audiobooks in the Galaxy


In the 45 years since George Lucas's interstellar fantasy epic Star Wars first hit theaters, the saga has grown to include 12 canonical feature-length films (and counting), a growing number of shows (both animated and live-action), and hundreds of novels and comics inspired by that galaxy far, far away. But there's nothing quite like the magic of a Star Wars audiobook. The stories featured in this collection are as vast and varied as the universe in which they're set.
