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 a child who snores so loudly, she is banished from her kingdom. Carol has a BS in Psychology and a MA in Communication. Along with writing books, she's also a journalist, screenwriter, playwright, and a producer for the movie, Turnover. Two of her screenplays have placed in prominent screenwriting competitions. Paur is a member of the Wisconsin Writers Association and Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Like everyone else, Paur has had her set of challenges – with one of her setbacks in life being born with a cleft palate. This required surgeries, speech therapy, and dealing with bullies. She draws on this and all her life experiences to write and inspire others. She loves meeting people and listening to their stories and sharing hers. Paur is grateful for her family, friends, mentors, and supporters.
