Carrie Ryan

Carrie Ryan is the New York Times bestselling author of a lot of books. She used to be a lawyer. Happily, she is not anymore. You can keep it that way by reading her books: If you like thrillers, check out Trapper Road, Book 6 in the #1 WSJ Bestselling Stillhouse Lake series, co-written with Rachel Caine. If you like zombies, try the Forest of Hands and Teeth series. If you like clever, fun adventure fantasy for 8-12 year olds, definitely read the Map To Everywhere series (co-written with her husband, John Parke Davis). If you like cold calculated revenge involving hidden identities and lots of secrets: Daughter of Deep Silence. If you or your kids like multi-author, multi-platform series like 39 Clues and Spirit Animals, try Infinity Ring: Divide and Conquer -- it's produced by the same publisher (and has vikings and true history!) If you like true-crime stuff (both fiction and podcasts), check out Dead Air, a serialized thriller co-written with Gwenda Bond and Rachel Caine.
