About the Author

Laura Martin writes historical romances with an adventurous undercurrent. When not writing she spends her time working as a doctor in Cambridgeshire, where she lives with her husband. In her spare moments Laura loves to lose herself in a book, and has been known to read from cover to cover in a single day when the story is particularly gripping. She also loves to travel--especially to visit historical sites and far-flung shores.

Reviews

"Martin's cryptid caper holds its own."--Kirkus Reviews
PRAISE FOR FLOAT: "A fun, funny, and fast-paced summer camp romp full of pranks, plot-twists and goofy superpowers. Emerson's adventures teach us that the greatest power of all comes from the friends who push us to overcome our perceived limitations and make the most of every moment."--John David Anderson, author of Ms. Bixby's Last Day
"The author piles hoaxes atop hoaxes on the way to a climactic end. The McNeil motto, 'Keep the Legends Alive, ' takes on new meaning for Grayson, as it will for readers."--ALA Booklist
"The family dynamics at play are convincing. The novel ends satisfyingly."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Simply superb. Martin's novel feels exactly like summer camp should; the antics of the boys and the friendships they develop will make readers wish they were roasting marshmallows in the woods with their best friends."--Booklist
"With lots of action, great dialogue, and plenty of humor, Martin's style and tone are reminiscent of Gordon Korman and Dan Gutman."--School Library Journal
"Martin conjures a sense of wonder and whimsy."--Publishers Weekly
PRAISE FOR THE EDGE OF EXTINCTION SERIES: "From one adrenaline-charged scene to another, the kids use their ingenuity to escape from or work with the prehistoric creatures. Will keep readers on the edge of their seats."--Booklist (Code Name Flood)
"Martin continues to delight both dinosaur lovers and techno geeks with her effectively conceived and well-written tales. In this fun and fast-moving sequel to The Ark Plan, the adventure starts with a bang and never stops. An exciting thriller."--School Library Journal (Code Name Flood)
"In this clever take on Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park, the tale is reimagined on a worldwide scale. Nonstop action, marauding dinosaurs, and kids on the run: What's not to like? This is a great buy for the sci-fi adventure-loving crowd."--School Library Journal (The Ark Plan)
