About the Author:
Elizabeth Wein’s childhood was shaped by five years spent in England and Jamaica, where her father, an educational psychologist, was engaged in teacher training for the Headstart program in its formative years. Elizabeth never got over this travel bug and has lived abroad for over 20 years, settling in Scotland in 2000 with her husband and two children. She earned a private pilot’s license there in 2003 and now holds both British and American citizenship.
Her 2017 novel, The Pearl Thief, is a young ***** mystery set in Scotland in 1938 and stars the appealing narrator of Code Name Verity in her madcap youth. Elizabeth also has a science fiction novel to her name, Cobalt Squadron, set in the Star Wars universe and connected to the 2017 release The Last Jedi. She is currently working on non-fiction for young people about the women who flew as combat pilots in the Soviet Union during World War II.
