Katie L. Carroll began writing at a very sad time in her life after her 16-year-old sister, Kylene, unexpectedly passed away. Since then writing has taken her to many wonderful places, real and imagined. She wrote her YA fantasy ELIXIR BOUND so Kylene could live on in the pages of a book. It has been described as "The Lord of The Rings with a YA fiction twist."
Katie is also the author of the picture app THE BEDTIME KNIGHT. Her latest project is a collaborative, serialized middle grade mystery called THE GREAT CONNECTICUT CAPER, which was released chapter-by-chapter from January-June 2015 by the CT Humanities, and is now available in print and audiobook.
After working as a puzzle magazine editor for Penny Publications for eight years, Katie left her office job to take care of her growing family and work from home as an author and freelance editor. She also enjoys presenting writing/publishing talks and workshops at writing conferences, schools, and libraries. She lives not too far from the beach in a small Connecticut city with her husband and sons.
