About the author (1999)

A longtime editor of books for both children and adults, Hugh Brewster is also the author of some acclaimed works for young readers. Born in London in 1950, Brewster was an editor for both Scholastic Books and Scholastic Canada before becoming editorial director for Madison Press Books in Toronto in 1984. Brewster's book Anastasia's Album (1996), was about the youngest daughter of Nicholas II and Alexandra, the last tsar and tsarina of Russia, who were killed along with their children by Bolsheviks in 1918. Brewster researched the work in Moscow's state archive, where he found Anastasia's translated diaries and hand-colored letters among the papers and photo albums of the tsar's family. Brewster has also written Inside the Titanic (1997), a lavishly illustrated book which uses the story of two young passengers to explore the doomed ocean liner.

Coulter spent many months researching the ancient Maya and how their language was decoded.

Elizabeth Emily Hicks and William Raymond Hicks are a husband and wife team who met through a transformational workshop environment called LifeSpring. During much personal growth together, Elizabeth, a.k.a. Elise, and William were both inspired to write Wings: The Journey Home. Elise and William are both students of history, psychology, self-empowerment, metaphysics, and quantum physics. Their intention is to teach what they have learned in an inspiring yet entertaining way. 'Wings' is their first published book, but they have published other books, including a book of poems, as well as several short stories and non-fiction books.
