Ellen Emerson White is an American author who has written a number of young adult fiction novels. Ms. White's first book, Friends For Life was published while she was a senior at Tufts University. Ms. White grew up in Narragansett, Rhode Island. Many of her fiction novels feature characters who reside in Boston or are from Boston and are fans of the Boston Red Sox (as Ms. White apparently is). In addition to her fiction novels, Ms. White has written both Sports Biographies and Historical Fiction/Biography books. She wrote four stories about the Echo Company in the midst of the Vietnam War under the pseudonym Zack Emerson. White got the name Zack from the name of her shepherd dog. She has also written the Santa Paws series under the pseudonym Nicholas Edwards.
If Zack Emerson had continued to write novels in the vein of and , I imagine that the series could have quickly gotten old. In fact, when I first read the series, I read (#3) second, since was not immediately available to me.
Hill 568 is the second novel in a five-book series by Ellen Emerson White (pen name Zack Emerson). This book starts off in the minefield of Michael’s head and wraps up with an action-packed climax reminiscent of John Marsden, covering a third of the novel. Why, oh why, is this series out-of-print? I’m going to have to seriously splurge for the fourth one.
