Meet the Author

Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet (15 August 1771 – 21 September 1832) was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet, popular throughout much of the world during his time.

Scott was the first English-language author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, with many contemporary readers in Europe, Australia, and North America. His novels and poetry are still read, and many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature. Famous titles include Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor.

He was acclaimed as the inventor of the genre of the modern historical novel and the inspiration for enormous numbers of imitators and genre writers both in Britain and on the European continent. In the cultural sphere, Scott's Waverley novels played a significant part in the movement (begun with James Macpherson's Ossian cycle) in rehabilitating the public perception of the culture of the Scottish Highlands and its culture, which had been formally suppressed as barbaric –and viewed in the southern mind as a breeding ground of hill bandits, religious fanaticsim, and Jacobite rebellions. Scott served as chairman of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and was also a member of the Royal Celtic Society. His own contribution to the reinvention of Scottish culture was enormous, even though his re-creations of the customs of the Highlands were fanciful at times, his extensive travels around his native country, notwithstanding. It is a testament to Scott's contribution in creating a unified identity for Scotland that Edinburgh's central railway station, opened in 1854 by the North British Railway, is called Waverley.

The fact that Scott was a Lowland Episcopalian, rather than a Gaelic-speaking Catholic Highlander or Presbyterian, made him more acceptable to a conservative English reading public. Scott's novels were certainly influential in the making of the Victorian craze for all things Scottish among British royalty, who were anxious to claim legitimacy through their rather attenuated historical connection with the royal house of Stuart.

    After the War

    Warriors - Cry to the Stars
    Book One: After the War


    "Okay," the red tom began, turning to face Nightpaw and Wolfpaw. "I want the two of you to attack me. Claws sheathed. Understand?" Foxleap meowed sternly, looking both of the young toms in the eye.
    Wolfpaw nodded slowly, looking serious, and Nightpaw quickly added his agreement.
    "Good," Foxleap meowed, taking a few steps back and dropping into a crouch. His amber eyes narrowed, fixed on the two apprentices as he wondered what they were about to do. Foxleap's tail twitched impatiently, and he called out encouragement, saying, "Go ahead!"
    Nightpaw and Wolfpaw exchanged quick glances. The two toms dropped into crouches, and sprang. Foxleap dodged their attack, leaping between them and whirling around with surprising agility.
    Nightpaw landed akwardly, but Wolfpaw quickly regained his balance, despite his twisted paw. The shaggy gray tom swiped a paw at his mentor, and Foxleap ducked to avoide the blow, swinging a paw to catch Wolfpaw on the leg.
    Nightpaw, having recovered, leaped at Foxleap. His blue eyes blazed with the light of battle, and the russet tabby felt a glimmer of admiration for the small tom.
    ThunderClan's deputy flipped over, using his back legs to send Nightpaw flying. Distracted, Wolfpaw used the advantage to pin him down. Mentor and apprentice rolled around in a ball of red and gray fur, tearing across the clearing.
    When they broke apart, Foxleap shook his fur and got to his paws. Nightpaw and Wolfpaw were panting, but both of them looked pleased with themselves.
    "Well fought, both of you," Foxleap panted, breathless. "You're both shaping up to be fine warriors!"
    Wolfpaw stood up a little straighter at his mentor's praise, and Nightpaw's blue eyes gleamed.
    "Now, let's go hunting and see if we can bring any prey back," Foxleap meowed, beckoning to the two apprentices with his tail as he padded off. Wolfpaw and Nightpaw bounded after him, and the three set off into the forest.
    ~•~
    Foxleap slowly stalked forward, his long tail sweeping the ground. His paws carefully placing themselves on the mossy ground, eased with long moons of practice, as he crept up on his chosen prey.
    Up ahead, the shrew practically ignored him. Amber eyes gleaming with satisfaction, the tabby tom leapt, his belly fur brushing the long grass as he pinned down his prey. Not giving the shrew a chance to escape, Foxleap dispatched his catch with a bite to the neck.
    Turning back towards the apprentices, Foxleap was pleased with their progress. In addition to his shrew, he had also caught a vole, while Nightpaw had caught a couple mice, and Wolfpaw had taken down a plump sparrow.
    "Let's head back to camp," Foxleap said, gathering his catch. Nightpaw and Wolfpaw following, the russet tom started off towards the stone hollow.
    After the hunters had dispatched their prey on the freshkill pile, Foxleap glanced around to see if Cherryfrost had returned. Willowkit, Treekit, and Patchkit were scuffling outside the nursery, while Leafpool and Birchfall rested outside their den. Lionblaze and Cinderheart were at the freshkill pile, sharing a thrush. But there was no sign of Foxleap's former apprentice.
    Shoving away a pang of worry, Foxleap told himself Cherryfrost would be fine. Whatever was bothering her would pass in a day or two.
    The russet tom shrugged his shoulders, then trotted off to join Lionblaze and Cinderheart at the freshkill pile.
