ROSALYN EVES grew up in the Rocky Mountains, dividing her time between reading books and bossing her siblings into performing her dramatic scripts. As an adult, the telling and reading of stories is still one of her favorite things to do. She has a PhD in English from Penn State and teaches English at Southern Utah University. The first book in her YA fantasy trilogy, BLOOD ROSE REBELLION, was a Whitney award winner. Her historical YA, BEYOND THE MAPPED STARS (Knopf/Random House), features a young LDS woman coming of age during the 1878 solar eclipse in the American West.
