Hi! I’m Emma Carrie–clean YA author, part-time introvert, and opportunist. I’ve explored an active coal mine, fired a Gatling gun from a Humvee, hitched a ride on a corporate jet, and wiped out on stage while modeling…just to name a few fun adventures.
I’ve made it a personal goal to say “yes” to opportunities that come my way as long as they aren’t immoral, unethical, or in any way violate my personal code of conduct, which includes prohibitions like consuming condiments and sour candy.
My background is in engineering, a choice largely inspired by a TV show I adored as a kid. But now I write science fiction, fantasy, and action adventure. My series have been tested and approved by teens and adults who have offered helpful (sometimes emoji laden) comments.
Regardless the genre, I love strong female characters fueled by unconquerable determination—the encouragement I hope readers take from my stories. Young or not-so-young, we all need a bit of inspiration.
P.S. Though I’d rather gain readers’ trust through the books I’ve written, for those who are hesitant about new authors…
I won the 2014 ACFW First Impressions Contest in the Young Adult category. And I was a finalist in the 2015 ACFW First Impressions Contest in the Speculative category and the 2016 ACFW Genesis Contest, Speculative Category. Each contest provided feedback, which has grown my writing skills. I hope you read my works to check them out. Feel free to contact me with feedback!
