Katie Carroll began writing after her 16-year-old sister unexpectedly passed away. Writing was a way for Katie to help her sister live on in the pages of a story. It also made her realize that she wanted to pursue writing as a career. In addition to penning novels for teens and kids, she edits novels, plays soccer, and collects signed copies of books.

Taking a life break (where you do some actual living instead of staring at the words that aren't getting written) is always a good way to get back on track. Sometimes, though, you just have to write through the block. Don't worry about if the words are good, just keep writing!(less)
