Caroline Walker is a writer, producer and urban explorer originally from Rock Island, Illinois. Her work focuses on the relationship between people and environment, with emphasis on American identity through sense of place. Thanks to the delicious dose of time, space, freedom and support offered during Kerouac Project residency, Caroline finished her first novel this past year. (Central Florida just might be her favorite character.) She is at work on her next novel and looks forward to sharing details.
Her nonfiction project-in-progress, America Underground, documents stories unearthed while hiking tunnels, mines, architectural time capsules, tracks, trails and unbeaten paths. In June/July 2015, Caroline will head to the North Pole aboard the Arctic Circle Summer Solstice Expedition, where she will call upon fairy tales to explore cultural connection with the natural world.
Caroline holds a BA from the University of Southern California and an MA from New York University’s Gallatin School.
