When not working on a novel, Carol is the editor of The Colorado City Record (in Texas, not Colorado) and has a degree in journalism.
She had published Advent Phoenix (Vol. 1 in the Journals of the Peregrine series) and Dictates of Conscience (Vol. 2). both books are stand alone stories, since Carol hates "Borg" series, i.e. seven of nine series where every book has to be read before a story is resolved.
Carol's experiences overseas in Ecuador, her love for the land and different cultures show up in her character-driven novels.
