Cate Carlyle – #NotReadyToDie

Ginny’s life suddenly comes to a screeching halt one fateful Monday when a shooter shows up at Southwestern High during first period. In lockdown with both the homeroom sub and her secret crush Owen badly wounded, Ginny finds herself teamed up with Kayla, one of the “Barbies.” Together, they must try to keep their classmates alive amid terror and pain…and there’s only one thing Ginny knows for sure: no one is making it out unchanged.

Cate began her career as a teacher and transitioned to work in school, academic and public libraries. Currently the curriculum resource coordinator at a Halifax university, Cate also reviews books for CM Magazine. Cate’s first book,
“Your Passport to International Librarianship” chronicled her international volunteer work and she has also had her fictional short stories published and shortlisted. Her first YA novel #NotReadyToDie will be released in 2019 by Common Deer Press.
