My name is Carol A. Grund, and I'm a published writer of fiction and nonfiction for both children and adults.

My stories, poems and plays have appeared in many children's magazines and several book anthologies, including Ladybug, Ladybug (Carus Publishing), Friend 2 Friend, Family Matters and Celebrate the Season (all from Pauline Books & Media). Published work for adults includes stories in two Chicken Soup for the Soul collections.

I first introduced the character of Anna Mei Anderson in 2010, in a novel for middle-grade readers. Response to that tile led to two sequels published in 2011. You can follow along on my Anna Mei writing journey by reading my author blog.
