About Erin Hunter
You may be surprised to learn that Erin Hunter is not one, but several people! Three authors and an editor have written the Warriors series of books. Three of them live in the U.K. and one in the U.S.
Editor Victoria Holmes creates the storyline for each Warriors book. Then she turns them over to authors Kate Cary, Cherith Baldry and Tui Sutherland, who take turns writing them. Sutherland, the group's sole non-British member, wrote three of the four field guides for the series. To confuse you even further, the manga (graphic novel) versions of the series are written by Dan Jolley.
Why the name Erin Hunter? The first reason was because they wanted all the books to be placed together in a library, where books within each genre are shelved by the author's last name, instead of scattered around the shelves under each of their separate names. They liked the last name of Hunter, which relates well to feral cats, the books' subjects. That name had the added advantage of placing their books near author Brian Jacques, whose Wind in the Willows books anthropomorphizing woodland creatures were popular with the authors.
But how do you get signed copies of books whose "author" is a made-up person? Editor Victoria Holmes has signed some copies on behalf of Ms. Hunter. Shown here is Kate Cary, author of the first two and numerous subsequent books in the series, who also often makes appearances as Erin Hunter.
