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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care. Stay well.
Much love and best wishes to you all,
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!
