Hi, I’m Carlie & I live for writing.
I learned to love books at an early age; my dad was an avid reader so I guess it was passed down in the genes. I began writing fairy stories for my own pleasure before I hit double figures – I loved Hans Christian Andersen & The Brothers Grimm’s tales – and I’ve written ever since.
My genre is Fantasy/Paranormal Romance. I love the creative process of building unique worlds, designing monsters and crafting characters. I’m fascinated by my own imagination and the places it takes me to.
My first two novels, Heart Search: Lost and Heart Search: Found are published with Myrddin Publishing. Book three, Heart Search: Betrayal, the final book in the trilogy is currently in editing and I’ve begun writing my fourth book, a standalone fantasy. I am also a principal editor for Eagle Eye Editors. Being an editor as well as a writer gives me a whole new perspective on my writing and it’s taught me a great deal. It’s challenging work, and something I really enjoy, but nothing can compete with my love of writing.
I run a writing group called ‘Writebulb’, which is in the next town to where I live. They are a great bunch of people who are really supportive! We have published four charity anthologies, two for adults and two for children. The latest one, a Christmas book for children called ‘Catching Santa and other festive tales’ has just been released. All the profits from all the group’s anthologies go to a local hospice.
I hope you’ll enjoy visiting my site; I post writing tips, book reviews, resources and random stuff, author interviews, great guest posts from some amazing authors and, from now on, stuff about my writing journey and my work. Please feel free to comment on my posts – I love to read what you think and enjoy the interaction.
