Carrie Mesrobian smI’ve worked as a teacher in both public and private schools; my writing has appeared in the StarTribune, Brain, Child magazine, Calyx, and other web and print publications. I teach teenagers about writing at The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. However, the best job I ever had was when I worked in a thrift store pawing through donations of cast-off junk. Loved that job so much.

My debut YA novel is Sex & Violence, published by Carolrhoda LAB.

My second book, Perfectly Good White Boy (Carolrhoda LAB) comes out in October 2014.

I wish I could report all sorts of cute quirky things that I do, but really, I’m kind of boring. I read a lot and never really go anywhere and don’t see that changing ever. Probably I should get some hobbies or something? Sometimes I crochet stuff.


I live with Adrian, my husband, Matilda, my daughter, and Pablo, my dog. All of whom are super interesting, actually. Built-in entertainment, really.

Also, I am represented by this very excellent person named Michael Bourret at DGLM. He does all my business-y things. Like, in case you want to pay me stacks of cash to make up stories or whatever.
