About the Author

Carol Elek was born in Cleveland, Ohio and spent most of her childhood in Wickliffe, a suburb of Cleveland. While in her teens, her family moved to Temple City, California, which is east of Los Angeles. After she married, she and her family moved several times until finally settling in LaVerne, California, a lovely city in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, twenty five miles east of Pasadena.

Carol has three adult children, four grandchildren, and two cats. Misty is a Russian Blue and is the author�s muse. When Carol sits down to write, she sits on her lap for a while, then curls on a chair next to Carol and sleeps all the time she�s writing. She is a smart, wonderful cat. Pepper is a beautiful black cat who is afraid of people. She is the opposite of Misty.
As an avid lover of California history, Carol became a volunteer docent at the Workman-Temple Homestead Museum in the City of Industry, California. She learned about California�s very complex, interesting, and exciting history. The historic site contains two adobe homes and the oldest private cemetery and mausoleum in the area. The first home was built by William Workman in 1842. Walter Temple, Mr. Workman�s grandson, built the second one in the 1920s. Carol and other volunteers give guided tours through both homes and the museum hosts several themed events throughout the year.
The Museum also holds story-telling events several times a year. The story-tellers choose books that have been written in and focus on the 1840-1930 time period that the Museum covers. Carol, as one of the story-tellers, saw the need for a book in this period for pre-teens. While it is not written in the time period, it does reflect the way people lived and traveled in that time.
The author hopes that everyone will enjoy reading about two brave boys and the rustlers.
