About the Books

In addition to the four Ember books, Jeanne DuPrau has written two memoirs, several nonfiction books, and essays, stories, book reviews, and magazine articles. She has been a teacher, an editor, and a tech writer. She lives in Northern California, where she enjoys reading, gardening, and drawing.

She is no longer doing school visits, but she is happy to speak with classes via Skype. You can get in touch with her here.

She is happy to receive emails from readers but can’t guarantee to answer them. Often she does. No snail mail, please.
