Carolyn got her start in writing back when the Xenaverse was still fresh and invigorating. She wrote quite a few fanfic pieces then, and has since moved on to the Once Upon A Time fandom. Inspired by the strong women in both fandoms, it’s no wonder that her own characters have hidden strengths and resilient spirits.
She lives deep in the woods of Northern Ontario, north of Sault Ste. Marie. Her muse, surely a woodland nymph, whispers to her often. Carolyn is addicted to black coffee, good chocolate and would like to sleep more. She lives with her wife, two teenage sons and two dogs.
Carolyn’s body of work consists mainly of short stories. A series about a young dragon, Frizzle, came as a result of needing new stories to tell her boys in their younger years. I Want and Darkness Behind The Desk were written to explore adult ambition, pain and loss. The Christmoose Gift is set in Northern Ontario and may well have happened in her front yard. Waaban: Dawn Kitten is a short Christmas story submitted to a holiday anthology. She also has one novel, currently out of print, A Thousand Shades of Feeling.
In the throes of breathing new life into her writing, Carolyn is hard at work on another novel. Amethyst Teardrop is a tale that promises we can claw our way out of loneliness and obscurity if we just open our heart. Also in development is a speculative fiction novella, Butter, about a quest for a plant that will save an entire clan, and one forgotten girl’s heart at the same time.
Carolyn can be found on Pinterest, where she frequently finds inspiration and maintains storyboards for her written work.
