About Caryn Caldwell

Caryn Caldwell PortraitHi! I’m Caryn Caldwell. I write middle grade and young adult novels full of humor, mayhem, and adventure — the kind I always loved to read as a kid and teen. Occasionally there’s even some romance. I’ve been crafting stories since childhood (when I regularly rescued my Barbies from imagined peril), through my teen years (when I wrote depressing poetry for fun), and into adulthood (when I discovered that writing books was more enjoyable than housework). My books are repped by the fabulous Danielle Barthel and Suzie Townsend of New Leaf Literary.

I also take photos. Lots of them. (It’s kind of an obsession.)

I live in the Utah desert with my husband, daughtertwo cats, a pair of guinea pigs, and an ever-expanding collection of books. During the summers I try to avoid the heat; the rest of the year I tutor an adorable flock of K-2nd grade students. I’ve also worked as a white water rafting guide, a school librarian, and an English teacher. As long as I can get some writing in each day, all is well.

When I’m not busy writing, hiking, working, or taking photos, I’ve been known to play around on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook.

Questions? Contact me. If you’re not a spammer, I’ll even e-mail you back. (Isn’t technology wonderful?)
