Meet the Author

Erin Hunter is inspired by a fascination with the ferocity of the natural world. As well as having great respect for nature in all its forms, Erin enjoys creating rich mythical explanations for animal behavior. She is also the author of the bestselling Warriors and Seekers series.

Biography

Erin Hunter is the nom de plume of three British writers who create enthralling, animal-centric YA fantasies in the tradition of Brian Jacques's Redwall books. In 2003, they launched their bestselling Warriors series with Into the Wild, the story of a domesticated kitten who leaves the comforts of his human home to join a family of feral cats living in the woods. Introducing a captivating world where rival cat clans struggle for survival, the book was an immediate sensation with animal- and adventure-loving preteens. Since its debut, Warriors has become a genuine publishing phenomenon, spawning a string of six-book miniseries, each with its own distinct story arc.

The Erin Hunter collaboration is an unusual but highly successful one. Characters and story ideas emanate from editor Victoria Holmes, who keeps track of previous plot lines, ensures continuity, and coordinates the details of a complex and growing cast of characters. Kate Cary and Cherith Baldry take turns writing individual books; then everything is vetted again through Holmes, who checks carefully to make sure the stories are told in a single, unified voice. With different writing styles at work, this would seem a daunting task. However, in a 2006 interview, Holmes explained her modus operandi: "I think of it as being able to "speak Erin Hunter", like speaking a different language, and after working on [so many] scripts, I know pretty much at once if a line or phrase doesn't sound right."

Although the Erin Hunter books are written for young readers, they do not shy away from difficult material. The animals face life-threatening dangers and experience pain, grief, and loss -- sometimes even treachery within their own ranks. But the authors are always careful to reinforce positive messages about family, friendship, loyalty, and love. Independently, Holmes, Cary, and Baldry stay busy with their own writing and editing projects; but in 2008, they reunited for a second animal fantasy series. Seekers: The Quest Begins features a trio of bears from different species (black, polar, and grizzly), who join together for an adventure-filled odyssey that will change their lives forever.

Good To Know

Fun facts about "Erin Hunter" and the Warrior books, plus advice for aspiring writers:
Cherith Baldry and Kate Cary have always loved cats -- and writing fantasy stories! Cherith is particularly interested in the stories of King Arthur, with all those glorious battles, knights, and a courtly code of behavior. Kate is fascinated by animal interaction and the way you can read all sorts of hidden motivation into what cats do. She's also not afraid of describing the goriest scenes!

Says Victoria Holmes, "I love being one of the Erins and frequently dream of being a cat running through a forest when I am coming up with new story lines. Teaming up with Kate and Cherith on the Warriors books is an unconventional way of working, but we love writing the books together and it means we can produce them much faster than a single writer could."

They came up with the single name, Erin Hunter, to avoid confusing their readers by having books from the same series filed in different places on the bookshelves.

Erin's advice for aspiring writers: "Read, read, and read some more! Make sure you read a wide variety of stories: fantasy stories teach you about making up completely new worlds, crime-solving stories teach you about handling a complicated plot, stories with lots of characters teach you how to describe relationships. Also, write as many stories as you can, even if no one else reads them. And remember that the best inspiration comes from what's around you -- Kate and Cherith go for long walks through the woods to find new locations for the cats to explore. They also spend hours watching their cats -- and other people -- to see how they behave in certain situations."

    Warriorcats Story- Duskstar's Destiny, prolouge

    A cold, full moon shown down on a forest, battered by rain. Far below on the muddy ground, a lone queen trudged along, carrying the body of a kit that twitches feebley every once and a while. The queen's green eyes were downcast, raw with greif and horrer. Long pink claw marks stretched down her flank. If one came apon her, it would be clear that she was once beautiful, but that time had passed. Her once lusterous gray pelt, flecked with black now hung raggedly on her body. She had just buried the body of her third kit. The previous two had died, and the kit she carried in her jaws was the last alive. It drew in a shuddering breath, and then stopped moving alltogether. The queen layed him down and began franticlly licking him. After some time, it wad clear that he too was dead. The queen threw back her head back and wailed in anguish. "No! No! Not you too, Blotch! You can't die too!" She buried her son, sobbing, and then stumbled on. Hours passed. She did not feel the rain. She did not hear the thunder. She tripped over a root and did not get up. What was the point in trying to livr now? She had lost everything. Her mate, her family, and now, her kits. She closed her eyes. Soon it would be over... "no dusk! You can't give up !" An all too familiar voice wailed. She opened her eyes too see her mate Storm standing over her. "Storm... am i dead?" she asked. "No, but you are close. You must get up and keep moving!" He commanded. " Why? You and my kits are gone. I have no purpose." She said. "The kits are safe with me." He mewed." Dusk looked up joyously to see four kittens frolicking at her mate's feet. "Before you can join us here, there is something you must do. Find other cats like you. I will guide you. You will live together as a clan, bound by a code of loyalty and honor. This is your purpose. This is your task." He mewed and then dissapeared. Dusk pulled herself up with a renewed sense of vigor. She would find these cats and create a clan. She would create Stormclan.
    ------well thats it for now. I need to know people are reading it for me to krep writing. If u wanna read more, post " dusk chapter two" id also appreciate it if u tell me ur thoughts. The next chapter will be created on the reveiws section of mistystars omen. I hope u enjoyed my story so far! - Duskstar

    Hey

    This book is very enticing, like most warriors books are. Bravo, Erin!

    Oh, and,Read "Fire of the River" at "dalmation" res one. As results change every so often, it's the one about training dalmations, though it doesn't have a dalm on the cover. Please read. I'm sure you'll enjoy.
