Casey Craiger is a children’s author from Danville, Kentucky, who now resides in Cincinnati, Ohio. She loves her family, coffee, plants, Halloween, and her cats Java and Socks.


She has a bachelor’s degree in Broadcasting and Electronic Media from Eastern Kentucky University and has a special place in her heart for community journalism. Previous places she has written for include The Advocate-Messenger, Richmond Register, and Lexington Herald-Leader.

As a kid, Casey watched far too much Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. As an adult, she aims to present hard topics in a way that is consumable for children, much like her childhood role model. She hopes her first children’s book, Be Like Socks!, serves as a catalyst for conversations surrounding mental health between children and their loved ones.
