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.

A black butterfly fluttered by, such a contrast to all the yellow swallowtails flitting about. I started thinking about the juxtaposition of the fragility of a butterfly and the symbolism of the color black. It got me thinking about human nature and wondering if someone has been trained to be a killer if they can ever not be one. That led to a story about a young woman who was trained as a spy but loses her memory. Can she really start with a clean slate or will her evil past always doom her future? And that's the central question behind my work-in-progress, a YA thriller called BLACK BUTTERFLY(less)

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)

I purposefully didn’t title this piece with the words “author brand” because there are important distinctions between a brand and what I’m talking about here (and calling my “author theme”), and also because I don’t want to anger Libba Bray! But let me back up for a second and give you the all-important context.
