Short biography
Founder and CEO of award-winning publisher Gallopade International, Carole Marsh is the creative force behind more than 15,000 children’s books and supplemental educational materials. Founded in 1979, Gallopade has built a reputation as a leading source for products focusing on social studies, with an emphasis on history, geography, and biographies, all correlated to specific state standards. Products include books, pocket guides, coloring books, reproducible activity books, maps, stickers, software, and many other educational materials in editions for all 50 states and Canada. Other products include the exciting Carole Marsh Mysteries, nonfiction, current events, reading and writing skills development, science, multicultural education, and teacher resources such as Gallopade’s All-In-One Bulletin Board Sets.

Marsh’s popular series, “Real Kids Real Places”, initiated from her own children’s request for her to write books for kids, and is aimed at young readers ages 7-14. This original series now has 24 titles, and since then, Carole has created 8 additional mystery series, all including real characters, historical and factual information, and tons of hilarious mishaps!

Carole Marsh’s instinctive kid-friendly approach toward making reading and learning both fun and educational earned Gallopade International the 2002 Teacher’s Choice Award from Learning Magazine. In 2004, Learning Magazine presented Gallopade International and Carole Marsh Mysteries with the Teacher’s Choice for the Family Award. Other accolades given to Gallopade include the 2003 Excellence in Education Award from the National School Supply & Equipment Association (NSSEA), and the 2007 i-Parenting Media Award.

Most recently, in 2007, Marsh, a Georgia native, was honored by the Georgia Writer’s Association and received the prestigious Georgia Author of the Year award.
