Biographical Sketch

Respected writer of fantasy and science fiction for young adults, Helen Mary Hoover was born in Stark County, Ohio in 1935. She was raised in the Midwest and became interested in science fiction at an early age, partly due to her family's science library (her parents were amateur naturalists). She has been praised for her believable female protagonists, fascinating views of scientific concepts, and strong belief in the human spirit.

HooverÕs works have all been named to the Dorothy Canfield Fisher list, to the Oglethorp Award list, and to the Maud Hart Lovelace list. She has received the Child Study Association ChildrenÕs Book of the Year award (1974); ALA Best Book for Young Adults citations (1974, 1981, 1988); New York Times Pick of the Lists (1974); ALA Notable Book citation (1981); the American Booksellers Best Pick (1984). Another Heaven, Another Earth was included on the ALA 101 Best of the Best Books of the Past 25 years (1994), and several Hoover novels have been Junior Literary Guild selections.
