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.

 The leaves have been clinging to their branches for weeks. Long autumns are the very best kind, though I wouldn't mind a little snow in time for the holidays. QOTD: Are you a fan of snow?⠀ ⠀ Currently reading: GRAY WOLF ISLAND by @traceyneithercott . It's so good, you guys! Eep! Can't wait to see what happens next.⠀ ⠀ #autumncolors #natureshot #autumnmood #takeahike #outdoornation  Golden hour at an autumn pond in rural Colorado. I love evenings. QOTD: What is your favorite time of day?⠀ ⠀ #autumncolors #goneoutdoors #autumnmood #landscapelovers #optoutside⠀  INSERT WITTY CAPTION HERE. ⠀ ⠀ No, really. These are my brother's neighbors' goats, and I'm too busy wishing I could pet them again to give them the caption they deserve. ⠀ ⠀ So please! Contribute in the comments below. Tag a few of your wittiest friends in a new comment, too, so they can contribute. (Wouldn't want them to feel as left-out as that poor goat in the background seems to be.)⠀ ⠀ When you're done captioning the goats, please slip a snack between the bars of their corral. They're partial to carrots and animal crackers, but let's be honest: even a moderately hungry goat will chomp on just about any foodish item. Thanks! I knew I could count on you. ⠀ ⠀ #goatstagram #goats #colorado #captionthis #studybreak
 Fancy book spines are the very best kind -- like a delicious secret hiding under a book's dust jacket. QOTD: Which hidden book spine(s) do you admire?⠀ ⠀ Books in the photo: ⠀ Stone Field by Christy Lenzi⠀ Jubilee Manor by Bethany Hagen ( @authorbethanyhagen )⠀ Ship of Dolls by Shirley Parenteau⠀ Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods ( @woodswrites )⠀ ⠀ #booklr #bookish #bookphotography #booknerdigans #amreading  I'm so excited for this new release by my dear friend Bridgid (@bridgidgallagher)! It feels like the perfect book to curl up with on an autumn afternoon. Book: Too Close to Home by Bridgid Gallagher. Link to purchase in @bridgidgallagher 's bio. ⠀ #bookstagram #booklr #amreading #readingtime #booknerdigans  Morning sunlight. A fresh book. Flowers. Cozy quilt. And, off to the side, a purring cat. A perfect combo to start what promises to be a very busy week. ⠀ #booklr #booknerdigans #flashesofdelight #lifeissweet #ilovereading⠀
