Time Travel

I’ve been curious about the past ever since I was a little girl.

I can't remember if this was my first grade or second grade school photo.

I read lots of historical novels. When my family visited historic sites, I imagined myself living there long ago.

That’s me, taking a carriage ride at Williamsburg, about 1965.

If you’ve read the original Caroline stories, have you ever wished you could actually meet her? When I was writing the first seven Caroline books, I often wished I could get a real peek at Sackets Harbor as it was during the War of 1812.

Well, that’s the idea that inspired American Girl to create a new kind of adventure for their historical characters.  Catch The Wind:  My Journey With Caroline is a story I wrote about a modern girl who travels back in time and meets Caroline!

Catch The Wind Can you imagine what it would be like to suddenly find yourself in Sackets Harbor, New York, after the war started? How would you feel? What questions would you ask? And after you made friends with Caroline, what kind of adventures would you have?

I had a lot of fun writing Catch The Wind.  I hope you have just as much fun reading it!

    As an adult and someone who always hated these kinds of books, I thought I wouldn’t like these new Beforever books but I actually really enjoyed Caroline’s. As always your attention to historical accuracy is much appreciated by this historian/librarian/longtime history nerd.
