Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse in 1950. He first became interested in writing when he was in the sixth grade, and started writing seriously at the age of 17. He married in 1969, aged 19, and started collaborating on books with his wife, Katherine Dietz, an artist. They have three children. He had many other jobs along the way, including toy maker, gravedigger, cookware salesman and assembly line worker, finally sticking with teaching until his first book was published in 1977.

thumb
The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher (2014)
(Misadventures of the Family Fletcher, book 1)
Dana Alison Levy

The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley (2015)
Shaun David Hutchinson
"The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley broke my heart, then put it back together again. I truly loved this book."
thumb
Weave a Circle Round (2017)
Kari Maaren
"Kari Maaren's Weave a Circle Round is deeply engaging, wildly imaginative, and frequently mindbending. Its central mystery grows ever more perplexing as the book hurtles toward its remarkable climax, with final pages that will have readers turning back to the beginning to see how the author has indeed woven her enchanted circle."
thumb
The Unicorn Quest (2018)
(Unicorn Quest , book 1)
Kamilla Benko
"The Unicorn Quest draws you into a richly imagined alternate world, keeps you on edge with clever twists and turns, then leaves you breathless as it gallops to its sensational climax!"
thumb
Tempests and Slaughter (2018)
(Numair Chronicles, book 1)
Tamora Pierce
"In the world of YA fantasy, there’s before Tamora Pierce, and then after her female heroes started kicking down the doors (and walls, and other barriers)!"
