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 four novels, the Heart Search trilogy and Of Ice & Air are published with Myrddin Publishing. My fifth book, Lorelian, the first in a seven book fantasy series called The Seven Doors, has been sent to an agent and I’ve almost finished the first draft of book two, Kankanoor.
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 used to run a writing group called ‘Writebulb’, which was in the next town to where I used to live. They are a great bunch of people who are really supportive! Under my leadership, the group published five charity anthologies, three for adults and two for children. All the profits from the group’s anthologies go to a hospice in Chelmsford.
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 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.
