More About Ellen Gunderson Traylor

She has written 15 novels which have combined sales totaling over one million copies. A former English and journalism instructor, with a Master's Degree in English, Traylor has taught courses at virtually every level, including those she created on writing as a craft for Whitworth College and Eastern Washington University. Her Write On! seminars focus on providing aspiring writers with a strong foundation in the basics.

Traylor has been a columnist and correspondent for a variety of magazines and newspapers over the years.

The Ninth Generation: Conquering the Giants Writing a novel set in the pre-flood earth is a daunting task with few historical resources other than the Bible, and not much said in Genesis to describe this epic period. Ellen Traylor has done a masterful work of imagineering to transport the reader into the lives of the early patriarchs and into a world of such evil that it had to be erased, later forming the basis for many legends. I was particularly fascinated with her geography of the early earth - "Adamlanda"[or "Atlantis"]- and the genetic alteration of creation, which I have also written about in a somewhat similar novel, The Ninth Generation: Conquering the Giants. After five years of personal research into this Biblical period, I agree with other reviews - Yes, it could have happened!
Read it! Oct 30, 2006
This was the first book by Ellen that I read, mainly due to my husband prodding me along as I don't typically get enthusiastic about science fiction novels, but I LOVED this one. Since then, I eagerly hunt down any books by her that I can find, and have yet to come across one that I didn't like. I really love how she portrays the characters and their developing intimate relationship with God. I hope she continues to write for as long as possible, I can't get enough! hehe.
Interesting Fiction Aug 2, 2006
From the first chapter this book really drew me in. It is an account of what times were like in the pre-flood era. She pulled from many resources outside the bible, and within.
This is, however, fiction, but the concepts that the author puts forth make for interesting reading. Especially since the climate (among other things) was different prior to the flood (no rain, no change in seasons). Many who worshiped the sun (aka Satan) had no roofs on their homes.
It's interesting to see things played out on her premise that demons lived on earth among men & women in plain view. They were considered Gods, lived in elaborate palaces, and were worshiped by the masses. These demons were attracted to the "daughters of Eve" and took them as wives.
With demons playing such an obvious role in leading men & women astray, its easy to consider how Noah & his family were the only righteous ones permitted on the ark. I did like how the author portrayed God's mercy by having Noah preach frequently to the masses proclaiming truth and urging them to repent.
Noah is a great read Jun 2, 2006
This is a fascinating take on the Old Testament story of Noah. ... very scripturaly correct, well written, easy to read.
I recommend anything by this author!
A Brick To The Side Of The Head Mar 20, 2006
When I picked this up used, at at a church sale, I had no idea what I was getting myself into! This, for want of a better term, Christian Science Fiction novel will change the way you view Noah and the antediluvian age. Ellen Gunderson Traylor started with the perfectly logical premise that if the Biblical Flood actually happened, then the legends about Atlantis MUST be referring to the antediluvian world and took off from there. The result is a fascinating journey through an alien but all too familiar world that will have you thinking, "Maybe this IS how it happened, or something close to it." Her theory about Noah's wife I found particularly apt!
Note: some critics seem to be hyperventilating about Traylor's interpretations of a few key verses. While it is certainly true that Traylor's interpretations are by no means definitive, they are well within the mainstream of Biblical scholarship. Even I personally don't agree with all of them, but I am not in the least offended by her take on them and frankly wonder about those who are. This is FICTION after all, though fiction that will REALLY make you think!
