While experiencing the typical adventures of growing up, Carrie Dalby called several places in both San Diego and Santa Cruz counties “home.” Carrie has lived on the Alabama Gulf Coast since 1996, and after a break from writing during much of her twenties, she’s devoted time to the craft since 2005. She has sold several non-fiction articles that have published in national and international magazines, was elected president of Mobile Writers Guild in May of 2011 and served two terms from 2011-2013, served as the Mobile area Local Liaison for SCBWI 2012-2017, and volunteers with the local chapter of International Reading Association’s annual Young Author events. When Carrie’s not reading, writing, browsing bookstores/libraries, or homeschooling, she can often be found knitting or attending concerts.
Two young adult novels, Fortitude (historical) and Corroded (contemporary), were published by Anaiah Press’s Surge imprint. Fortitude is listed as a “Best Books” for kids with Grateful American Foundation for its historical accuracy and being an engaging read for fifth through tenth graders.
Her current project is a historical Gothic family saga for adults with romance and horror elements called THE POSSESSION CHRONICLES. The first book in the series, Perilous Confessions, releases in January 2019.
