Hi, I’m Caitlin Gutheil, and I write books for young adult and middle grade readers. As a kid I was always reading, and I still can’t go anywhere without a book tucked into my bag. I grew up in New York City, spent a decade in Boston, and now live in Portland, Maine with my husband, my daughter – and my books.

My last name’s a mouthful, so here’s a pronunciation guide: GUTH (short u, like Gus)-I’ll (or isle or aisle). Hope that helps!
