I’m Cathryn Free and I’m a writer, children’s author, and teacher.
I write fiction and nonfiction for children and teens (and some for adults). My work has appeared in Unlocked, East of the Web, and Smartpants Magazine, with several titles forthcoming from magazines like Muse and Frostfire Worlds.
As a teacher, I love sharing what I’ve learned about writing and offer plenty of resources for teachers and students, like my Free Writer’s Workshop!
My goal is to create books, stories, and articles that get kids exciting about reading and marvel at the world around them!
