About the Author
A native of South Florida, C.K. Carter graduated from UCF in 2001 with a B.A. in Literature. Since graduating, she worked as a high school English teacher and award-winning journalism adviser. Seven years after setting a goal to write a children's book, and having two children, Carter finally had a breakthrough after telling an improvised bedtime tale to her eldest son. His constant requests for the story pushed her to finally write her first book, The Castle Across the Street, which won a Silver FAPA President's Book Award in 2014. A year after losing her first dog, Carter wrote and published her second book, My Silly Dog Gus, as a reminder of the happiest and funniest times with the family pet. My Silly Dog Gus was awarded a 2014 Silver IBPA Benjamin Franklin Digital Book Award. Carter is currently working on her third book; a sequel to The Castle Across the Street.
