When she was barely old enough to spell, Karli Roth wrote a dramatic story starring a four-year-old heroine. Why? She was convinced there weren’t enough suspenseful novels with four-year-old main characters.

Today, she has taken a lesson from her younger self, and she aims to write stories that resonate deeply with readers.

She won the One Teen Story contest in 2023, and her story, A Piece of Him, is now published.

You can find her staying up late to finish a good book, sporadically jotting down song lyrics, or bringing stories to the stage through theater and speech.

As an aspiring novelist, she pens Christian speculative fiction that doesn’t lose its heart in the action. Join her on this journey today and receive a list of her top 15 fiction book recommendations as a welcome gift!
