Hey there!

Hi! I’m Caryn Caldwell. I live in the deserts of the southwestern U.S. with my husband, daughter, and a lot of bookshelves. We are accompanied by several armloads of fluffy cats and sweet guinea pigs. When I’m not out hiking with my family, I write middle grade and young adult books, and am represented by the fabulous Suzie Townsend of New Leaf Literary & Media, Inc. Learn more about me here.

 This heart-shaped leaf caught my eye while I was out hiking. Autumn is such a lovely time of year.  Some cactus flowers for your Sunday morning enjoyment....  The view from a (very hot!) drive through the Nevada wilderness. The desert is full of life if you look closely enough. What's something you wish more people noticed?⠀

What's something you're anticipating?⠀ ⠀ (Book: SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE by @morgamat )  Why, yes, sunflowers DO make good bookmarks. Why do you ask?⠀ ⠀ QOTD: What's the strangest thing you've used as a bookmark?⠀
