About the Author

Chris Eboch is the author of over 20 published books for young people. Her book Advanced Plotting helps writers fine-tune their plots. The Eyes of Pharaoh is a mystery set in ancient Egypt, for ages nine and up. This story of drama and intrigue brings an ancient world to life as three friends investigate a plot against the Pharaoh. In The Well of Sacrifice, a Mayan girl in ninth-century Guatemala rebels against the High Priest who sacrifices anyone challenging his power. Kirkus Reviews called The Well of Sacrifice, "[An] engrossing first novel.... The novel shines not only for a faithful recreation of an unfamiliar, ancient world, but also for the introduction of a brave, likable and determined heroine." Chris's Haunted series follows a brother and sister who travel with their parents' ghost hunter TV show. The kids try to help the ghosts, while keeping their activities secret from meddling grownups. The Knight in the Shadows won the 2010 New Mexico Book Awards in the category Juvenile Book. Her other books include two inspirational biographies in Simon & Schuster's Childhood of Famous Americans series, Jesse Owens: Young Record Breaker and Milton Hershey: Young Chocolatier, written under the name M.M.
