Catherine Jinks is a medieval scholar and author of young adult books - a background that is evident in this second of four stories about Pagan Kidrouk. Catherine Jinks’s books have garnered numerous awards, including the prestigious Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year. Pagan grew out of a university course Catherine Jinks took about the Crusades and out of her fascination with the real Order of the Templar. She was also heavily influenced by British comedies like MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL. She did not expect, however, that she would end up writing four books about Templar squire Pagan Kidrouk. "He was such a strong character," she explains, "that he sprang into my head fully formed and wouldn’t go away until I’d worked out his entire life span."

Peter de Sève, who created the striking jacket artwork for both PAGAN'S CRUSADE and PAGAN IN EXILE, is a NEW YORKER cartoonist and the designer of animated characters for ICE AGE, the 2002 Academy Award winner for Best Animated Feature Film.
