      • bioText:

        I grew up in a large family in a little house with a lot of books and paintings on the inside and a big woods on the outside. I wanted to be an artist like my mom, and I loved comics, so I decided to be a comic-book artist. After a few years of trying to draw comics I realized that I wasn't very good at drawing, so I decided to write books. It took a long time for me to figure out how to do it. I spent thirty years doing other things sign painting, printing, pineapple cutting, tire repair, graphic design, and building cabinets. Finally, at age thirty-seven, I figured out that if I wanted to write books, I had to plant my butt in a chair and write. Every day.

        About My Work:

        It worked. Since then, I've written more than twenty-five novels, mostly for teens and younger readers. My biggest and most exciting project was The Klaatu Diskos, a time-travel trilogy that took more than a decade to write. When I started writing The Klaatu Diskos, I didn't know how long it was going to be, how hard it would be, or how many years it would take. But if I had to do it over again — I wouldn't change a thing. The final book in the trilogy, The Klaatu Terminus, was published in April 2014.

        Three Things You Might Not Know About Me:

        1. I am very disciplined; I take at least two naps every day, but never more than four.
        2. My dog's favorite thing in the world is to watch the toilet flush.
        3. I wrote my first book at age eight. It was called My Autobiogrphy. It was a very short book.

The Obsidian Blade
fullDescription

Kicking off a riveting sci-fi trilogy, National Book Award winner Pete Hautman plunges us into a world where time is a tool - and the question is, who will control it? The first time his father disappeared, Tucker Feye had just turned thirteen. The Reverend Feye simply climbed on the roof to fix a shingle, let out a scream, and vanished - only to walk up the driveway an hour later, looking older and worn, with a strange girl named Lahlia in tow. In the months that followed, Tucker watched his father grow distant and his once loving mother slide into madness. But then both of his parents disappear. Now in the care of his wild Uncle Kosh, Tucker begins to suspect that the disks of shimmering air he keeps seeing - one right on top of the roof - hold the answer to restoring his family. And when he dares to step into one, he's launched on a time-twisting journey- from a small Midwestern town to a futuristic hospital run by digitally augmented healers, from the death of an ancient prophet to a forest at the end of time. Inevitably, Tucker's actions alter the past and future, changing his world forever.
