is the two-time Governor Generalʼs Award winning author of seven novels including Egghead, Greener Grass, The Gospel Truth and Shooter.
At age 16, she wrote a short story for her Writer's Craft class assignment and the seed of that idea never left her. Years later, it became Greener Grass, winner of the 2009 Governor General’s Award for Children’s Literature. In 2015, Caroline won her second Governor General’s Award for The Gospel Truth -- a free verse novel told in six voices.
Apparently, there are a lot of voices in her head. We meet five more of them in Caroline's latest novel, Shooter, winner of the 2017 Red Maple Award. Like Caroline says, everyone has a story to tell -- all we have to do is tune in and listen up.
She lives, writes, and teaches in Ottawa.
