On this website I will review books, talk about travelling and the book I’m writing.

Some information about me:

Name: Caroline Wheeler

Job: Currently a pupil support teacher in two local primary schools. I trained as a biology teacher so I’ve seen all sides of education. I can officially say that primary is harder than secondary, sorry high school teachers!

Places I’ve Traveled To: Expect to see blogs about Scotland, Disneyworld, Italy, France, Spain, Sri Lanka, and Tenerife. The most out there place I’ve visited is Israel. My favourite places are Orlando and Venice.

Favourite books: A Court of Thorns and Roses and A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas. Also the Throne of Glass series. What a lady. Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. The Beach by Alex Garland. The Queen of The Tearling by Erika Johansen. Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

My book: It’s a young adult fantasy novel set in a country based on Scotland. I found that usually fantasy novels are set in England so I wanted to take Scottish folklore and settings and build a world around them. I had a few rules when going into planning: no one should be called Hamish, there should be a lot of rain and it has nothing to do with Independence. I really love my characters and the world I’ve built and I’m hoping to finish the first book by the summer.

Other Hobbies: I’m a huge board game lover and we have loads of them. I also ski, camp and hike. I love country music and craft beer.
