The author Kevin Carroll was born and reared in Dublin Ireland.
Married to Barbara for 46 years they have three daughters, one son and 10 grandchildren.
Kevin served for 37 years with an Irish building society.
He has had an interest in writing since his school days. His younger brother John encouraged him to write stories for children. Kevin has written some plays suitable for children and families.
When his grandchildren came along he began writing short stories for them. This led him to writing his first book for children in the 5 to 12 age group. He enjoys drawing and sketching and believes the inclusion of relevant illustrations in the story enhances its appeal.
Most of Kevin’s time is spent with his wife and extended family. His other interests include music (accordion and guitar) film editing and travel. He has travelled throughout Europe, UK, US, Canada and Africa.
