More About the Author

I have been a lifelong writer and storyteller. Salem, Oregon is where I spent my formative years and I graduated from Willamette University. After college, I spent a decade living in Portland, Oregon where I worked in advertising, game design, and technology.

I've written young adult and children's books for Scholastic, Little Brown Books For Young Readers and Katherine Tegen Books/ HarperCollins Publishers.

I've been fortunate enough to have had some bestselling series work: The Land of Elyon, Atherton, Elliot's Park, 39 Clues, and Skeleton Creek. Here's a fun note...the books have been translated into approximately two dozen languages. Currently I'm developing a few new-media projects. Check out DARK EDEN to experience this type of cross-platform project.

When I'm not writing or creating a story, I spend my free time supporting literacy campaigns and community organizations, fly fishing, playing basketball and tennis, doing crosswords, watching movies, dabbling in video games, reading (lots), and (more than anything else) spending time with my wife and two daughters.

5th grade class loves it!
Leah J. Dunn
Each story takes about 15 minutes to read and watch, and the chilling videos at the end of each short story keeps everyone on the edge of their seats.

Each has the right amount of angst for its tween-teen characters, and will give yours some of the same.

I am an 8th grade English teacher and I have a lot of students that "hate" to read. I found this book by chance and read one of the stories around Halloween. My kids went crazy! They loved it! There is always a fight during our 15 min silent reading time to see who will get this book. The best part is that the stories, with videos and all, are under 15 minutes. I recommend this book to kids that struggle with reading, because they have the video to look forward to at the end of each short story. I think it helps them struggle through. This author is changing the way we can use books inside and outside the classroom. Can't wait for season two!!

Review by This Kid Reviews Books! Find me on the web!

3:15 stands for - 1. Listen to an audio file 2. Read the short story 3. Watch the video ending and you get the whole story in about 15 minutes! Each chapter is a short scary/weird story. The stories are full of hair-raising, spine chilling things like ghosts, cursed objects, evil science teachers and everything else that can go "bump in the night"!

You can read 3:15 in 2 ways! One way is getting the book, listening to audio files, and watching the videos online. You can also buy everything as an app. I really liked how Mr. Carman put videos mixed with reading in his Skeleton Creek series and this series I think is really cool. Each story has an audio introduction (and the music is even creepy). The stories are definitely exciting (sometimes even a little too creepy and I didn't read them in the dark)! I really like the short story format of this series. The video endings were something I looked forward to when reading. I think the stories will keep any kid (or adult) interested in reading! My mom said it reminded her of the Twilight Zone (what ever that is, but she said you adults will know ). I would recommend it to kids 10+ only because some of it can be very creepy. It's not like violent but some of the stories are scary! If you are a fan of scary stories, this book is for you! If not, read Mr. Carman's book Floors (one of the best books I have read this year)!

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By S. Stevenson VINE VOICE on October 10, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Scary stories can be a lot of fun -- especially when they're coming from the mind of Patrick Carman, author of the wildly popular SKELETON CREEK books. And with 3:15 SEASON ONE, Carman delivers another spooky, multimedia piece of work that will leave readers gasping and pulling the covers up and over their heads.

Containing nine stand-alone stories and one tie-in to the SKELETON CREEK books, THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT boasts a good variety of scares. Each story begins with a passcode to enter on the 3:15 website, where readers can first hear an audio introduction to each story. The introductions are told by a man known as Paul Chandler, who has mysterious secrets of his own to hide away. After each intro, readers dive into the book to find out more of the story. And finally, as they finish reading, they log back onto the website and enter a second passcode that will unlock a video to finish the story.

The creepy introductions do well to set up the mood and perhaps a burning question, and then the written parts add to the general feel. But the scariest part of these stories is definitely the videos, which had me jumping multiple times and checking over my shoulder. I was wondering how the acting and production of each video would be, and I was pleasantly surprised. The actors and actresses do a good job portraying their characters, and even the small spattering of special effects are well done. A couple of times, it seemed like little details from the videos and the book didn't always match up -- such as a certain piece of clothing Carman described characters wearing. But otherwise, the videos fit very well with the format and leave things pretty chilling.

I take this book out right around Halloween in my fifth grade classroom and the kids can't get enough of it! Each story takes about 15 minutes to read and watch, and the chilling videos at the end of each short story keeps everyone on the edge of their seats. 3:15 is perfect for emerging readers, group read aloud settings, or anytime you're in the mood for a scare! Check out the 3:15 app as well!

I use this book to read to classes on the week prior to Halloween. Kids love it. The format of audio, reading, then video is marvelous. Kids can't get enough of it, and they request more and more.
