Lorraine Carey is a veteran children’s reading specialist, teacher, and International award-winning author. She has taught in many states in the US and provided reading services for students at a private school on Grand Cayman, where she lives with her husband. Six years ago, she was a city gal, living in Orange County, California, where life was very different from the one she lives now. Trading in her fashionable heels for flip-flops was quite a change but led to a lifestyle that allowed for her writing career to begin.

Her love for paranormal stories and urban legends began at a young age when staying up all night to watch spooky movies or reading a scary book, which started a lifelong passion.

Published novels include: Losing Ground, a short memoir, followed by Mysteries of the Red Coyote Inn, Out of the Ashes, Jonathan’s Locket, and The Last Vestal Virgin. All of which are paranormal novels with a mix of historical fiction, woven in with urban legends. Beloved Sacrifice is a supernatural thriller for young adults to adults. A Rock Star Reader by Kindergarten is a self-help guide for parents on how to raise a successful reader and lifelong lover of literacy.

Her most recent works include The Good Teacher,  book 1 in the Women of the Willow Wood series, in the occult and suspense genre.

When she’s not writing, you can find Lorraine reading, beach- hopping, snorkeling, or boating around the island with her husband on their boat, the Angelica.
