Caren was raised in Ohio, the oldest of four children. Much of her childhood was spent reading every book she could get her hands on, and crafting her own stories. She was influenced by a diverse array of authors, including Rumer Godden, J.R.R. Tolkien, Ursula Le Guin, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Willa Cather, and the Brontë sisters. She has lived in Virginia for over twenty years where she practices physical therapy, teaches anatomy and lives with her partner and their canine fur-children. She began writing creatively again several years ago. Her first novel, Looking Through Windows, won a Debut Author award from the Golden Crown Literary Society in 2009. Since then, she has published eight more novels, winning multiple Rainbow Awards and a 2014 GCLS Award for In This Small Spot. Her latest release, Rising From the Ashes: The Chronicles of Caymin, is the first volume in The Dragonmage Saga.

She lives in Virginia with her partner 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.
