About the Author

Monica Furlong is best known in the United States for her two award-winning books for young adults, Wise Child and its prequel, Juniper. In her homeland of England, she was many things-journalist, biographer, novelist, feminist, activist, and social commentator and critic. To all of these roles she brought her abiding commitment to the Christian faith and her simultaneous disillusionment with established social structures. Confronting injustice and hypocrisy wherever she found it, she campaigned for changes to laws that discriminated against homosexuals and successfully led a movement for the ordination of women in the Church of England.Monica Furlong finished Colman, the sequel to Wise Child, just before her death in January 2003, in Devon, England. She was seventy-two years old.
