Carol Di Prima’s career as an educator has spanned decades. She began her career as an elementary school teacher, librarian and media specialist. Being the school’s librarian and media specialist intensified her passion for books and writing. It gave her great joy to see the look of wonder when her students read their favorite books. 

Lily…Laura, DiPrima's first published work, has garnered the 2023 BookFest Award Honorable Mention for Fiction-YA-Fantasy; as well as finalist for the Spring 2023 Four Seasons Book Award.

Di Prima is a member of the American Library Association (ALA).  She has degrees in elementary education, and intermedia from Lehman College and School Library and Media Specialist (SLMS) from Syracuse University. She lives in Westchester, New York, with her two cats, Sienna and Bella.



A wonderful, engaging, story with both realistic and fantasy aspects... strong, relatable characters captured both the insecurities of youth well as tapped into adolescent invincibility and questioning. 

Reader Review on


Imaginative prose and sharply drawn characters elevate the intriguing, original premise in Di Prima’s marvelous middle-grade drama.

An ageless intriguing story about overcoming, family issues, warrior-hood and being mission driven. This well-written escape is for all ages. Buckle in.
