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