About the author (2006)

Kathleen Duey has a passion for writing and literacy. She is the acclaimed author of several popular series including American Diaries (Simon & Schuster), The Unicorns Secret (Aladdin Books) and Hoofbeats (Penguin). Her stories have entertained and enlightened thousands of children and young adult readers. A favorite among parents, teachers and librarians, Kathleen has appeared for speaking engagements at schools, bookstores, literacy conferences and book trade shows worldwide. At Big Guy Books, Kathleens role is to craft fast-moving, action-packed stories for each book. Children with a thirst for adventure are drawn to her stories of young people whose survival depends on their determination and self-reliance. Taking a cue from another famous author, J.K. Rowling, Katheen has crafted a multiple-volume plotline, each containing a complete adventure--and a few more revelations about the time-jump mystery that connects one book to the next. Over the course of the ten-book series, the mysterious plot is revealed. There is nothing less at stake than the fate of the world and the outcome depends on the Time Soldiers...of course. While working on the series, Kathleen developed a concept called Stealth Literacy, a premise rooted in the idea that kids that discover reading is fun will become self-propelled readers. For reading to become more fun (especially for the young male reader) is must be more engaging. Todays kids require more visual stimulation to hold their interest than any generation before them.
