The elusive Obert Skye was born a number of years ago in a town just about the size of the one you are living in. Obert read his first book at age 2. He wrote his first story at the age of 4, and he was nearly trampled by a herd of water buffalo at the age of 6. For a short time he lived on the Isle of Skye out of Scotland where he spent his time as a candy-taster.

Besides Traveling and writing. Obert enjoys solving mysteries and collecting old maps. He also enjoys roller coasters and water polo. Several years ago Obert Skye says he discovered the existence of Foo. Since then, Obert spends every chance he gets to help children discover and use their imaginations.

Obert Skye loves dragons. He wishes he had a few. Actually, he wishes he had a few dozen. Unfortunately, at the moment he doesn’t even have one. Because of this he’s really enjoyed telling the tale of Beck Phillips and his family’s ability. To quote Obert, “Dragon droll aside, writing this book has been one exciting ride.”

Obert is also the award-winning author of the bestselling Leven Thumps series. Obert currently lives indoors and near a thin, winding road.
