Caldric Blackwell realized he loved reading when he read about a bunch of people (with single-syllable names) and their pets (also with single-syllable names) in kindergarten.

Exposure to a host of great authors while studying at the University of California, Santa Barbara inspired him to begin writing fiction. Although he started writing short stories for adults, he eventually migrated to writing children's books. Blackwell's debut work is an early chapter book titled The Enchanted River Race, which he followed up with picture book The Boy Who Couldn't Cry Wolf and middle grade book The Missing Alchemist. He is currently working on a sequel to The Missing Alchemist.

Outside of writing, Blackwell enjoys hiking, gardening, and playing a variety of string instruments. He currently resides in Southern California.
