Carey Blankenship is a book fanatic college student about to be awarded her degrees in Creative Writing and English from Berry College in December of 2016. Living in the hills of Georgia, Carey devotes her free time to traveling, writing, cooking, practicing yoga, reading, and petting dogs. Her poetry, fiction, photography, and nonfiction essays have been published in magazines such as Red Rose, Voices Against Cancer, and Ramifications. What is she going to do with her life? She doesn’t know! Ask her at the end of December, and maybe she’ll have a job. But also maybe not. One thing for sure, however, is that she always will be writing YA novels. Her current project, entitled Stonehaven, follows the story of three best-friends as extraordinary gems guide them on adventures sure to last a life-time.
