WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF CAROLYN MARSDEN

I've always loved to write. As a teen I wrote short stories and novellas, then added poetry when I was in my twenties. When I started to write for children after my own children were born, I developed a genre of my own-- short, multicultural and historical fiction set all over the world. Lately, I've been experimenting with genres that don't come naturally to me, but which I find exciting. I've completed a draft of a YA fantasy set in 16th century Thailand. I'm also hard at work (very hard at work!) on a YA sci fi that takes place in the far future. I'm writing this novel in collaboration with author/illustrator Andrea Zimmerman. Both these projects have stretched me as a writer.
