Gabriel Gale is a science and history buff and a thrill-seeking adventurer, attributes that serve him well as a Royal Historian of Oz. He lives in the borough of Brooklyn, New York, where he tries to stay out of trouble – although he claims (like a certain noteworthy ancestor of his) that Oz is real and has taught him a lot about life. When he isn’t fighting rogue Sorcerers, Wizards, and Witches, Gabe is a writer, an artist, an explorer, and above all, a relentless defender of the Good.

Lisa Fiedler has written over forty books for children and young adults (under her own name and various pseudonyms) including the MOUSEHEART trilogy.
