About the Author

Carol L. Paur lives with her family in Wisconsin. Isasnora Snores is her first middle grade children’s book. It's about an infant who snores so loudly she shatters glass and throws people into fits of hysterical laughter. At the start of Covid, Paur wrote mini scripts based on Isasnora Snores and downloaded them onto YouTube. She also created a podcast titled: Talking to Myself. It's geared toward young listeners. Paur is a volunteer and member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and Wisconsin Writers’ Association. She blogs monthly. Fans can meet Paur during her "Café Tour" (socially distant and with masks) as she discusses her writing and autographs your copy of Isasnora Snores. Paur is grateful for her family, friends, mentors, and supporters.
