The decision to write for children was due to happy years teaching story and poetry writing to primary children and reading novels and poetry to them at story time. I began writing my own adventure stories and was writing my third book when I realised I was writing the books I had wanted in my own classroom. Books about the lives of children who lived many years ago, in places that 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 now 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.
