Elise Stokes’ first book, Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula, burst into prominence when it was selected by a middle school class in the U.S. in 2011. Written for a teenage audience, it’s an adventure tale about a teenage girl who’s turned into a superhero. It quickly rose to bestseller status.
Since then, she has published three more titles in the series: Cassidy Jones and Vulcan’s Gift, Cassidy Jones and the Seventh Attendant, and Cassidy Jones and the Luminous. All have achieved bestseller status, as well as praise from critics and readers of all ages.
The fifth book in the series, Cassidy Jones and the Eternal Flame, is due to be published in early 2017.
Her aim was to write adventure books that are “fun and relatable, and a bit edgy without taking the reader uncomfortably out of bounds.” With a daughter in middle school and two in high school, Elise lives with her husband and four children.
