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."

    MY DAUGHTER WILL NOT PUT THESE BOOKS DOWN!

    I bought this series for my 10 year old daughter because she absolutely love the first original Warriors series. Every spare minute she got she was reading these books, and was so excited about the characters. She read the first series, then the second series called The New Prophecy in less than a month. Seriously...all twelve books in one month. She finished this series in 8 days, and I have now ordered her the last series called Omen of the Stars. I don't know what I'm going to do when she's done, lol. Thank you Erin Hunter for writing such great books for kids!

    Outstandingly AMAZING!

    This Book Series, WARRIORS POWER OF THREE, is the most AMAZING series ever. It is the third series of Warriors and I read them all! This series begins with the three main characters, Holly, Jay and Lion, Playing as kittens. I would love to give an overview, but you would not like it if I gave it all away. It is a thrilling, exciting well-wrighten descriptive book and all I have to say about it is more good things! It will blow you away!

    Page-turners for tweens

    My 10-year old daughter loves this whole series and is devouring these books so quickly that she got this set and the following one for Christmas. She hasn't put them down since.

    My 9 year old daughter first started reading these books in her school, but she only finished the first one in school. Now she is reading the second one every minute of the day! IT'S SUMMER!
    SHE'S READING IN SUMMER! For her birthday in about 11 days, she said she wants all the warrior books and she said she wants to make a fan series.

    Another great set of the Warriors series

    The series continues with this set, power of three, and is written in the same great style as the original set. I am looking forward to the next set of 6 books.

    Book set saves time and money

    My daughter loves this series. They don't sell the sets in the stores and was having to buy 2 to 3 books at a time because she reads them so quickly. She got this for Xmas and was so excited that it was a set.

    One of the greates arcs yet!

    The Warriors Saga continues with the third arc: Power of Three. I got this box set for Christmas, and I already read The Sight-Eclipse before getting the gift.

    I have to say, this was one of the most dramatic, scandallous arcs I've ever read (and books itself I've ever read!)!

    I would totally recommend this to teens that are interested in fantasy adventures stories like Redwall and novels by David Clement-Davies.

    I Also Recommend:

    Very enjoying

    I love this book series, especially the last one, just because of what happens, though it's a bit upsetting. Definitly recommend this for any fantasy lover. Jayfeather is a very great cat, Hollyleaf is honest, yet a bit secretive, and Lionblaze is a great fighter. This is a series that I'm gonna stick to, since I can't find anything like this.

    Please, IF YOU DIDN'T READ THE OTHER LAST SERIES, read them. The new prophecy is as good as this, and the original is the best.

    Also, Jayfeather has some funny quotes in here.

    The only thing that could be changed is the writing. It went a bit too quick to what happens next, for me, but it's still as good as ever. Another thing, it was a bit too short, but I'm a fast reader. I just finished it, and I got it yesterday...bad situation. But I was bored, and sick at home, so who could blame me?

    Sorry for this being long. XD I love this series, and I'm a pretty good writer myself.

    Warriors power of three series

    Although i didn't buy the b oxed set, i have all the books and they're amazing. but read the first 2 series or you won't understand ANY of it seriously. I'd reccomend buying the boxed set of 6 because nothing else is a better value.
