Carolyn Lunn has been writing since she was a child, starting with poems in birthday cards to family members. Her first published books were early readers inspired by her two children.
Carolyn graduated from the University of Oregon before spending a year at the University of Poitiers in France. She enjoyed several study breaks spent in Belgium, Spain, Portugal and Italy. After graduating, she taught English in Tokyo, was a nanny in Germany, and lived in England for nine years. In all these places, she always sought out the best museums and coffee shops.
Carolyn lives in colorful Colorado where she would be lost if not for the mountains. When not writing, she is gardening, running, watching sports, or making homemade pasta. The only traveling she does now is to coffee shops, or trips to dog-sit her “grand-children”: Boursin, the puggle, and shelter-dog, Osita. Both can find trouble but are irresistibly adorable.
Carolyn hopes her adventure books pique curiosity in children and make the world a little smaller because children the world over are fundamentally the same. Though they speak different languages or eat different foods, children are curious, need love and happiness, and gaze at the same stars.
