Genre


I write books about teens who must do brave things. I'm originally from California, but I now live in Arizona with my husband, who is the smartest and therefore sexiest man I know. My books tend to contain lots of adventure, a little magic and romance, and smart girls who make (mostly) smart choices. I especially love to write about questions I don't know the answers to.

Rae Carson isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but she does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from her feed.

WalkOnEarth-finalOulá! Here are my fall tour stops for Walk On Earth A Stranger.


I’m especially excited because I get to bring some friends with me, so each stop features an author or two whose books I think you might like.


Am I coming to your city?

“I love you the way a drowning man loves air. And it would destroy me to have you just a little.”
Rae Carson, The Crown of Embers

“I think sometimes when we find love we pretend it away, or ignore it, or tell ourselves we’re imagining it. Because it is the most painful kind of hope there is.”
Rae Carson, The Bitter Kingdom

“Honor from death,” I snap, “is a myth. Invented by the war torn to make sense of the horrific. If we die, it will be so that others may live. Truly honorable death, the only honorable death, is one that enables life.”
Rae Carson, The Girl of Fire and Thorns
