ABOUT BARBARA CARROLL ROBERTS

  • Barbara Carroll Roberts grew up in northern California. She holds a degree in English from Occidental College in Los Angeles and an MFA in writing for children and young adults from Hamline University in St. Paul, MN.


    She’s held many jobs: farm worker, bookstore clerk, corporate communications writer, video producer, substitute teacher, children’s book reviewer, mom. And now, as a children’s writer, she has a job that allows her to draw on aspects of all her previous experience to write books for kids.

    She has two grown children and lives in northern Virginia with her husband, one very goofy Springer spaniel, and two cats.

    She is represented by Ginger Knowlton at Curtis, Brown, Ltd.
