The decision to write for children was due to happy years teaching story and poetry to primary children and reading novels and poetry to them. I began writing my own adventure stories and was on my third book when I realised I was producing books I had wanted in my own classroom. Books about the lives of children who lived many years ago and in the places my classes visited on our environmental study trips. Other teachers then found the books a useful addition to their study work and many schools have them in their classrooms. But they are really exciting adventures, and I hope you will enjoy reading them. I have completed a masters degree in creative writing, and my next book, River Dark, sequel to Candle Dark, is soon to be printed. Oh, and I’m also working on my first novel for grown-ups 🤗
Happy Reading, Carole Anne Carr MA.
