Carly Stevens' life revolves around stories.

At six, she started writing.

At ten, she read and wrote stories all the time.

At fourteen, she read The Lord of the Rings and fell in love with fantasy.

At sixteen, she finished her first novel (not a bad plot concept, but cringy execution!)

At eighteen, she chose English as her college major.

At twenty-three, she became an English teacher.

Soon, she decided to make her childhood dream of becoming a novelist a reality!

Carly lives and writes in beautiful Colorado, where she drinks coffee, enjoys the mountains, and teaches high school students about Hamlet. Not a bad life, wouldn't you say?
