Hannah MacLeod asked Isabel Allende:

What got you into writing YA fiction (City of the Beasts, etc.)? (I LOVE that trilogy, by the way!)

Isabel Allende When I wrote the trilogy I had three teenage grandchildren. When they were little, I told them made-up stories when I tucked them into bed. The next night they wanted me to repeat the story with exactly the same words and, of course, I couldn’t. So I promised them that I would write a book for each one of them. That’s the origin of the trilogy The Eagle and The Jaguar.
