(1961- ) US author, primarily of Young Adult fantasy, including the Scarborough Fair sequence [see Checklist]. Of sf interest is Double Helix (2004), whose young protagonist discovers that he is the subject of an illicit experiment in Eugenics designed to apply a molecular biologist's Inventions in the field of Genetic Engineering to the creation of superior stock. The depiction of the experimenter as something of a Mad Scientist is perhaps immoderate. [JC]
