Lorraine Carey’s love of books becomes glaringly apparent when you read her resume: she is an experienced children’s reading specialist, a teacher, and an award-winning author of several paranormal and mystery books. Carey has taught in Ohio, Arizona, New Mexico, California, and her current home, Grand Cayman, where she continues to write and work with children.
A love of ghost stories and scary movies at a young age inspired Carey to pursue the paranormal genre as a writer. Her stories are often founded on personal experiences with the paranormal and strange historical facts, which she heightens with a twist of magic and gripping mystery. Because of her teaching experience, most of Carey’s work is geared toward a middle grade or young adult audience. Years of reading with children showed her what kids want in a story, and inspired her to write for young readers.
