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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Take care. Keep calm. 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!
