Carole Anne Carr

Worked as a teenager in a bank in Zimbabwe, then returning to England to become deputy head of a primary school. After early retirement, worked as an actress, then set up my own art and craft business, trained for three years to hold the Office of Reader in the Church of England, and then became a full time writer of children’s fiction. Living in Shropshire, I write historical fiction for older children, suitable for Key Stage 2 and 3. I have just completed my first fantasy, set in the Shropshire village of Tong that moves into Norse Mythology. At the moment, I am writing the sequel to Candle Dark, River Dark, set on the Severn. It is a story about a pit pony driver in Blists Hill in the late 18th century, an exciting adventure suitable for Key Stage 2 and available online and at the Museum Book Shop in the Victorian Village at Blists Hill. I have further books planned for the Wolf and the Task Bearer Series, and I am looking forward to writing more adventure stories about the places I visited when taking children on environmental study trips around Shropshire. Now writing my first romantic comedy for adults. School visits as visiting author and Speaker and Storyteller at various venues.
