Author Biography

Jonathon Scott Fuqua is the award winning author of three much lauded, award-winning young adult novels, The Reappearance of Sam Webber (ALA Alex Award, School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, Booklist Editor's Choice, and more) and DARBY (Oppenhiem Toy Portfolio Platinum Award, Book Sense Top 5, Mark Twain Award finalist, and more), and The Willoughby Spit Wonder ("It is the kind of novel, by turns comical, haunting, and thrilling, that comes only once in a blue moon" The Boston Globe). For teenagers and adults, he has written a "groundbreaking" graphic novel, In the Shadow of Edgar Allan Poe, which was nominated by YALSA as a Popular Paperback for Young Adults (2005). And for young children he has penned Catie & Josephine (a Washington Post Book of the Week) an innovative graphic/chapter book that might be the first of its kind. In the Wake of the Boatman, his latest novel, came out in December 2008. All of his published books are available nationally and internationally.
