Caroline Blake lives in Garstang, Lancashire with her husband, Darrell. They have three grown up children, Thomas, Anna and Darius, who have now flown the nest. Caroline spent 25 years as a lawyer before giving up the corporate life and opening a café with her husband in St Annes, Lancashire, in 2014. She also runs an online gift shop.
During the Covid-19 lockdown in 2020, the café was forced to close, so Caroline made a pledge on her Facebook page that she would bake a cake every day and share the recipe, so that families could bake together and to keep the kids occupied. This inspired Caroline to write a cookery book for children, which in turn ignited a love of writing children’s fiction – she then went on to write her first novel, Dogwood Lane.
Caroline is also in the process of writing a book for young adults.
