YSABEAU S. WILCE is the author of Flora Segunda, Flora's Dare, and Flora's Fury, and she has also published work in Asimov's Science Fiction and The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. She has been nominated for the World Fantasy Award and the Tiptree Award, and Flora's Dare won the Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy.

"One of the freshest fantasies I’ve read in years."--Charles de Lint "Highly original, strange, and amusing."--Diana Wynne Jones "Thirteen-year-old Flora Segunda is a charming narrator . . . Like Pullman’s Lyra Silvertongue or Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching."--The New York Times Book Review
