HELLO!

***

I’m Emma Carroll, author of books for ANYONE of ANY AGE – although you’ll probably find them in a book shop or library in the 9-12 section.

You’re most likely to find me hanging out in the Somerset Hills drinking tea and writing under the watchful eye of my Jack Russell terriers.

***CORONAVIRUS UPDATE***

Further to the latest news re: Coronavirus, I’m very sorry to let you know that two of my upcoming festival appearances have been cancelled: first, at Oxford Literary Festival on April 4th, and secondly, at Hay Festival on May 21st. I’m so sad about this. Apologies to anyone who has bought tickets: I hope you’ll be able to get the cost refunded.

Over the coming weeks, I will be updating this page more frequently, as well as posting on social media. One of the best things about being an author is meeting readers, and with no festivals/ store signings/ school visits currently planned, I’m going to miss hearing from you all!  So, we need to be creative about how we stay in touch. 

Please do follow me on twitter @emmac2603. and/or Instagram @emmac2603 if you don’t already.  You can also get in touch via email at emmacarrollauthor@gmail.com

Take care. Keep calm. Stay well. 

Much love and best wishes to you all,

Emma x 

 

THE TSUNAMI IS COMING….!!!

My next book, ‘The Somerset Tsunami’ is publishing 3rd October 2019. It’s my first full-length novel for over a year, and was the Editor’s Choice for 9-12 fiction in The Bookseller, so I’m really excited to share it with you! The story is inspired by the true events of January, 1607 when a huge surge of seawater flooded the Somerset coast. Recent research suggests it may have been a tsunami. Our main character is Fortune Sharpe, a girl who’s often mistaken for a boy, which doesn’t make life easy for her. I hope you’ll enjoy her adventures!
