Born to be wild, WORD ROCKER is known to frequent concerts and has been spotted at shows from California to New York, and from the Great Lakes to the Gulf Coast. Whatever you do, don’t tell her that she’ll never listen to all 5,500 songs she has in her iTunes account—she needs the variety to choose the perfect songs to fit the moods of her different writing projects.
Born and raised in California, CARRIE DALBY has lived in Alabama for nearly two decades but still has trouble with the humidity of summer. When she’s not writing, Carrie homeschools her three kids and splits her time between family, reading, knitting, concert going, and volunteering. Sharing her love of literature for young adults and children is one of her favorite things to do, and her volunteer hours reflect that. Her local church congregation, the Mobile Writers Guild, SCBWI, and the Metro Mobile Reading Council are where she loves to spend her “free time.” www.carriedalby.com
