Kara Seal has been penning fantastical tales since her crayon wielding days. She grew up devouring stories about girls who became knights, boy wizards and mythical creatures. She graduated from Colorado State University with a B.A. in English and a focus in Creative Writing. After college she found work at her local public library, where she discovered her passion for working with children and teens. This passion prompted her to focus on writing for young people. After writing and querying several truly terrible manuscripts, Kara finally wrote one that wasn’t so terrible. She entered her novel into a writing contest. Out of that contest, she won first place and ended up signing with her agent. Kara lives in Colorado with her husband and two dogs where her head is filled with stories and her house is full of books.
