Meet the Author

Erin Hunter is inspired by a love of cats and a fascination with the ferocity of the natural world. In addition to 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 Seekers and Survivors 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."

    Sea

    I'll bet the "endless lake" will turn out to be a very salty lake. i.e. the ocean, or, as warriors put it, the sun drown place.

    The Endless Lake

    Excellent story! Gillian and the Survivors writer sure do seem to have it going! The characters have good development, and she is skilled with figurative language, details, and speech. I read this book in one day, and could not put it down. I can't believe about Alpha's ending.... He may or may NOT die in this book, but if he "does", expect the unexpected ;)

    One of the most interesting books!!!

    -SPOILERS-

    I really enjoyed The Endless Lake! Alpha betraying the Wild Pack hit them all hard, despite him putting himself first before his Pack. I doubt he could rejoin them,, not after what he's done. Sweet becoming leader instead of Lucky was a nice surprise, and Lucky becoming Beta was kind of to be expected, but I like this setup of leadership more than Alpha being the Alpha and Sweet being the Beta. Storm was A-MA-ZING in this book! She got ALOT of character development with Fang and she finally proved her loyalty to the Wild Pack! I think she'll get even more development in the last book and her conflict with Fang and the Fierce Dog Pack will continue. Okay, so I think that in the next book Lucky and Sweet will get together, and something WILL definitely happen Alpha, whether he dies or not, or he will rejoin the Wild Pack for some crazy reason? And I hope Storm gets a more heroine like role in the Storm of Dogs, also how is Lucky linked to the Storm of Dogs? Who knows? Anyways, a 5 out of 5 star review! Can't wait for the next one!

    No

    If u like this get Warriors.
    PS, WHAT DA HECK HAPPENS TO BRAMBLESTAR?!?!?!? I HATE CLIFFHANGERS! QUIT WITH DAWN OF THE CLAMS AND GET BACK TO THE CURRENT CLANS!!!
    Anyway, Survivors is very interesting. I had no clue dogs call cats "sharpclaws", when the Warriors simply call them dogs.
    And i meant Dawn of the Clans, not Clams XD

    PPS, did u forget about Seekers, Erin? Not that it matters to me, i'm a pure Warriors fan and 50% Survivors fan.
    MAKE. MORE. WARRIORS BOOKS.

    ~ BBRae4Ever333 (yeah i watch Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go. Raven is my favorite and i'm a total BBRae fangirl to the point where i go nuts when i see BBRae. In both TT and TTG, Rav is my fave. Haha, a rhyme! Rav is mah fave. XD)
    And, I READ THE TTG WIKI!!! SOMEBODY TELL ME HOW TO MAKE AN ACCOUNT!!!
    PPPS, i DETEST BBTerra. That's right, Pepsi B&B. I hate it. I detest it. I hope Terra never comes back. BB is RAVEN'S.
    BB and Raven were meant for eachother.
    Waait... this isn't a TTG reveiw...
    Anyway, get the book, don't get the book, do what you want. I reccomend you get it. *watches a clip of TT where Raven runs up and hugs Beast Boy after he comforts her for being "creepy"*
    That one will be my profile pic :')
