Elizabeth Doyle Carey

Elizabeth Doyle Carey has been working in book publishing for over twenty years. First as a bookseller at the Harvard Bookstore, then as a book agent’s assistant at the Doe Coover Agency, then as editor, editorial director, and senior editor for three children's book publishers: Addison-Wesley (part of Pearson, LLC), Golden Books (now part of Random House), and Workman Publishing. 

Liz has had more than thirty books for middle grade readers published, including the JUNIOR LIFEGUARDS series, the CALLAHAN COUSINS series, and many of the titles in the CUPCAKE DIARIES and forthcoming SPRINKLE SUNDAYS series (writing as Coco Simon) and in the DEAR KNOW-IT-ALL series (writing as Rachel Wise). Her publishers are Simon & Schuster, Little, Brown, Planet Dexter (Pearson LLC), and Dunemere Books. 

Liz lives in New York City with her husband and three sons, a pug, and a tabby cat. When she is not reading or writing she is mostly attending hockey and lacrosse games, visiting museums, seeing shows on Broadway, eating cupcakes, or talking to her sisters on the phone.
