Read full description of the books The Wyrd of Willowmere:The eagerly anticipated third volume of the Willowmere Chronicles
Sixteen-year-old Claire Norton has come to terms with her new identity as a twice-reincarnated witch, but many things in her life continue to haunt her. Though she now believes her mother fled years ago in order to protect her family from the evil Dark Circle coven, Claire is still no closer to finding her. And although the head of the coven has been weakened by the harmful after-effects of his own black magic, the sinister young warlock Nicholas van Buren is poised to take over as heir apparent. As well, Claire must confront her growing feelings for a boy at her high school and her desire to get closer to him while at the same time trying to keep him safe from the supernatural dangers that surround her.
What shape will her final destiny take? Will Claire be able to defeat her enemies and enjoy a normal life at last—or will the ultimate sacrifice be demanded of her?
Read information about the authorAlison Baird is a resident of Oakville, Ontario, Canada, and a graduate of Trinity College, University of Toronto, where she earned her Honours B.A. in English and her M.A. degree.
As an author she had an early start, publishing her first poems when she was 12. In 1994 her first book, The Dragon's Egg, was published by Scholastic Canada: it was a national bestseller and a Regional Winner of the Silver Birch Award (a children's choice award). It is now featured on school curricula across the country. The Hidden World and White as the Waves: A Novel of Moby Dick, both published in 1999, were Canadian Children’s Book Centre "Our Choice" selections, and White as the Waves was shortlisted for the IODE Violet Downey Book Award. The Wolves of Woden, the prequel to The Hidden World, followed in 2001 and was featured in Resource Links Magazine’s “Best of 2001.” Baird’s next project for Penguin was the The Witches of Willowmere (also a CCBC “Choice”), volume one of the “Willowmere Chroncles.” In 2003 her adult fantasy novel, The Stone of the Stars, and its two sequels were sold to Warner Aspect through the Sternig & Byrne literary agency and were published in 2004 and 2005. The Stone of the Stars received a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly.
Baird's short fiction has appeared in On Spec magazine, a Canadian periodical of original science fiction and fantasy for adults. Her story "Dragon Pearl" received an Honourable Mention in the 1996 edition of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror published by St. Martin's Press. Another short story, "Moon Maiden," appeared in the acclaimed young adult anthology What If. . .? Amazing Stories Selected by Monica Hughes (Tundra Books, 1998), which was an ABA Kids’ Pick of the Lists for 1998 and was featured on the New York Public Library’s Recommended List. "Moon Maiden" has since been reprinted in two Canadian school readers, and is available in an audio version from Prentice Hall.
