Carolyn Young is a single mum living in Melbourne with her children and rescue cats. Most of her writing falls under the speculative fiction banner with Young Adult dystopian as her main focus. She has several short stories appearing in both Australian and international publications.
A considerable amount of her life has been spent moving from one university course to another trying to find her place in the world before realising her interest in reading extended to an even stronger passion for writing.
She now spends her spare time reading, writing and dreaming of the day she can move to the country and write full-time.
As a writer she credits any and all success to her cat, who always knows the right keys to walk over to inspire creativity.
Carolyn’s short story, ‘The Beginning of the End’ was published in Aussie Speculative Fiction’s anthology, ‘Beginnings.’
