Author Biography - Emily Bronte
Emily Bronte was born at Thornton, in Yorkshire, in 1818 and died in 1848. She was the younger sister of Charlotte Bronte and the fifth of six children. Like her sister, Emily worked as a governess and later attended a private school in Brussels. Emily published poetry under a male pseudonym to avoid prejudice against female writers but Wuthering Heights was her only novel. Jennifer Donnelly is a bestselling and award-winning author.

Times Book Prize, the Borders Original Voices Prize and a Michael L. Printz Honour. Jennifer's other books include The Tea Rose and the picture book, Humble Pie. Jennifer lives in Brooklyn, New York.
