Book Announcement: My first middle grade novel PIRATE ISLAND will be out this fall! Join Billy–nope, call him William–on his crazy adventure to find Captain William Kidd’s lost pirate treasure. Details on the cover, pre-sale, and more coming soon.
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.
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. It’s free online and is now available in hardcover and audiobook.
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), Facebook page, 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
