Carla J. Underwood was born in Indiana and grew up in a small town in the northwest corner of the state. She understands both the challenges and the rewards of living in a small community.

That knowledge is woven throughout all of her books about small-town life. That includes her young adult series about the 1950s in rural Indiana and the first book in her new, modern-day series about small-town life.

She and her husband now live in a quaint Montana town not far from the university where they met. She continues to enjoy the wide variety of outdoor activities the state offers.
