Event Update: I’ll be attending THE GREAT CT CAPER book launch on Monday, February 29, 2016 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.!
Please join Connecticut Humanities at the Russell Library in Middletown, CT to celebrate the The Great Connecticut Caper! Meet the authors (including me!) and illustrators, buy the book, pick up Caper goodies, and enjoy light refreshments. The event is free, but registration is required.
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).
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 BEDTIME KNIGHT, illustrated by Erika Baird, is my picture book app that is published by MeeGenius, part of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. With a little help from Daddy Knight, a young mouse learns how to turn the scary shadows of the night into fun imaginings.
And my latest project is a collaborative, serialized middle grade mystery called THE GREAT CONNECTICUT CAPER, which was released chapter-by-chapter starting in January 2015 through the CT Humanities. Gillette Castle has gone missing! Thomas, Li-Ming, and their class must find it before an evil witch steals it forever.
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 my Tumblr mommy blog are the places to see if you want a sneak peek into my life as a writer, editor, and mom. #InkRipples is an interactive monthly meme hosted by me, Mary Waibel, and Kai Strand on our blogs, and we’d love to have you join us.
I hope my journey and books help you find and pursue your own dreams.
Your Friend, Katie
