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***

Many book festivals for 2020 have now been cancelled, sadly, though do check if they’re offering online alternatives. I’ll be appearing at some of these and will post details when I have them. I’m also offering online versions of my school events until Jan 2021- see my school events page for more info. In the meantime, 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. 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!
