Bestselling author Caren Werlinger published her first award-winning novel, Looking Through Windows, in 2008. Since then, she has published seventeen more novels, winning several more awards. Influenced by a diverse array of authors, including Rumer Godden, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ursula LeGuin, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Willa Cather and the Brontë sisters, Caren writes literary fiction that features the struggles and joys of characters readers can identify with. Her stories cover a wide range of genres: historical fiction, contemporary drama, and fantasy, including the award-winning Dragonmage Saga, a fantasy trilogy set in ancient Ireland. Most recently, she created the magical setting of Little Sister Island (a place she and her readers wish were real) in When the Stars Sang and Face the WindIn 2021, she was awarded the Alice B. Medal in recognition of her body of work.

She lives in Virginia with her wife and their canine fur-children. That’s Hermione (the cute, furry one) in the photo above.

  1. Hey, I also grew up (mostly) in Ohio. Always a big reader,too. Have read several of your books recently. Now I just have to go back to see where I bought them to do the reviews up right, so to speak.

  2. I absolutely loved “Neither Present Time”! It was amazing. My review is on goodreads.
    I’m very curious about one thing and I just had to contact you to ask about it. You wrote in the acknowledgments section of the book that you did indeed find an old book with the inscription described, though you’ve changed the date.
    If it’s ok with you, I’d love to know the original date of the inscription 🙂

    • Rachel, thank you so much for reading and writing. My copy of Rumer Godden’s Take Three Tenses was a reprint from 1948, inscribed in 1949. That book was originally published in March of 1945, which fit in perfectly with the timeline of my story.
