If you’ve found me here, you’ve already noticed that I’m moving into my new home, carolinecarlsonbooks.com. (Sort of a mouthful, I know. But carolinecarlson.net will get you here, too, if you prefer it.) I’ll be sprucing things up and putting together a new look for the site as the release date for Magic Marks the Spot approaches, but for now, I hope you’ll enjoy my circa-2001 web design skills.
Many years ago (like about 5), when I worked as an editor at a textbook development company, I was overcome with jealousy when my coworker Shoshana Flax left the company to pursue an MFA in writing for children at Simmons College. When Shoshana left, I realized how desperately I wanted to do exactly the same thing, and a few years later, I earned an MFA of my own. In addition to being an amazingly talented poet, writer, editor, and bookseller, Shoshana is also a blogger, and I’m interviewed today on her blog. Please visit Walk the Ridgepole to learn a little bit more about my path to publication, and stick around for her excellent book reviews, interviews, and thoughts about the world of children’s lit.
