About the Author

Caroline McAlister teaches English at Guildford College and every year takes students to Oxford, England, to study fantasy in the setting where Tolkien lived and wrote. She lives in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Eliza Wheeler wrote and illustrated New York Times bestseller Miss Maple's Seeds and enjoys eating Hobbit food and reading Tolkien aloud with her friends. She divides her time between the coast of California and the riverbanks of Wisconsin.


Caroline McAlister's father was an English professor and she grew up in a house full of books. On weekends for fun the family went to used bookstores. Like her father, she now teaches English to college students, but as a young child she wanted to become an author of children’s books. Now in her second career she has returned to her earliest aspirations. When she is not reading or writing you may find her playing tennis, cooking strange vegetarian meals, or quilting some of the fabric scraps she has hoarded. She is married to a philosophy professor. They have two fierce, smart daughters, and a large, loopy Labrador retriever.
Eliza Wheeler is the author-illustrator of MISS MAPLE'S SEEDS (Penguin), which debuted on the New York Times Best Seller list. She has illustrated many children’s books, including JOHN RONALD’S DRAGONS: THE STORY OF J.R.R. TOLKIEN (Caroline McAlister), TELL ME A TATTOO STORY (Alison McGhee), WHEREVER YOU GO (Pat Zietlow Miller), and Newbery Honor winning novel DOLL BONES (Holly Black). Eliza received the SCBWI National Grand Prize Award for best portfolio in 2011. She lives with her husband in Minnesota.
