My name is Katie L. Carroll and I write books for teens and kids. My writing journey began at a very sad time in my life, but it has since taken me to many wonderful places (real and imagined).

Visit my books page for information about my published books, book trailers, and other fun stuff. Check out my author visits page if you’re interested in booking me for an author talk or writing workshop. My Observation Desk blog, my twitter feed (@KatieLCarroll), and Facebook page are the places to see if you want a sneak peek into my life as a writer, editor, and mom.

My first middle grade novel PIRATE ISLAND is here! It’s available from AmazonBarnes & NobleKobo, IndieBound, and many other of your favorite book sellers. A thrice cursed island, a legendary pirate treasure, and one not-so-brave boy. What could possibly go wrong?

My dreams came true with the debut of my young adult fantasy ELIXIR BOUND, which was published by MuseItUp Publishing. Come along with Katora Kase as she decides if she will become guardian of a secret healing Elixir and bind herself to its magic.

THE GREAT CONNECTICUT CAPER is a collaborative middle mystery written by 12 Connecticut authors and 12 Connecticut illustrators and published by the CT Humanities. Gillette Castle has gone missing! Thomas, Li-Ming, and their class must find it before an evil witch steals it forever. Originally the CT Caper was released chapter-by-chapter starting in January 2015. The ebook and audiobook are available for free, and there is a hardcover version as well.

I hope my journey and books help you find and pursue your own dreams.

Your Friend, Katie
