Earth's Children is a series of epic  historical fiction novels   written by Jean M. Auel set circa 30, years before present. There are six novels in the series. Auel had previously mentioned in interviews that there would be a seventh novel,  but publicity announcements for the sixth confirmed it would be the final book in the sequence.

Jean M. Auel may not be done with Earth's Children, after all. But Auel says she has not stopped thinking about her heroine Ayla and her adventures in prehistoric times. It's what I do. Fascinated by life thousands of years ago, to the point where she learned how to make an ice cave and tan leather, Auel started the series in her early 40s and debuted in with "The Clan of the Cave Bear," which later became a film of the same name starring Daryl Hannah as Ayla, the orphaned Cro-Magnon raised by Neanderthals. The first three novels of the series were completed by the mids, but then Auel slowed down. The fourth book, "The Plains of Passage," took five years to write.
She has the real name, Jean Marie Untinen and was born as the second child among a total of five siblings. The series deals with the interactions of the Cro-Magnon people with the Neanderthal people during the time of prehistoric Europe. The series was such a hit that it went on to sell more than 34 million copies all over the world and was also translated into multiple languages. This is something that she feels awkward about very often. She now lives happily in Portland, Oregon with Ray Bernard Auel, her husband and their five beautiful children. Before becoming a professional writer, Jean used to work as a clerk during , while still studying.
