Carly Drake loves books, but loving them was not enough — she has to write them too. As a reader and as an author, she gravitates toward period pieces and supernatural works, stories that offer the advantage of escape to a different time and set of rules. Mix a magical world with the drama of young adults discovering who they are, or in some cases what they are, and you have a recipe for her favorite brand of make-believe.
A former fashion design student, a Coast Guard wife, and eternal devotee of UK and Irish actors, Carly currently endures the heat of Texas with her husband, two children, and one giant puppy.
