While experiencing the typical adventures of growing up, Carrie Dalby called several places in both San Diego and Santa Cruz counties “home.” She has lived on the Alabama Gulf Coast since 1996. Serving two terms as president of Mobile Writers' Guild and five years as the Mobile area Local Liaison for SCBWI are two of the writing-related volunteer positions she's held. When Carrie is not reading, writing, browsing bookstores/libraries, or homeschooling, she can often be found knitting or attending concerts.

Carrie's current project is a historical Southern Gothic family saga series for adults, The Possession Chronicles. The first book, PERILOUS CONFESSIONS, will be released January 8, 2019 by Bienvenue Press.
