Caroline Barnard-Smith


By day I run around after my three young daughters, by night I moonlight as a fantasy author.

Since graduating from university with a bachelor's degree in English Literature, I've worked as a website designer, a market trader, a radio presenter and as an assistant in a health food shop. Being a mum is the best job I've ever had but writing runs a close second.

My debut dark fantasy novel, Dunraven Road, was published in June 2009 - a mere twenty-one years after I first started writing aged five. It was a long apprenticeship.
