The daughter of an Air Force officer, I’ve lived in dozens of diverse places, from Florida to Washington state and dozens of places in between. I’ve never lost the love of new horizons.
My “real” jobs have also been diverse, including teaching junior high, processing insurance claims, delivering and sorting the US mail, and working in the offices of a well-known cable television company, a large university and a major nonprofit hospital. I also owned and operated a bakery and worked at numerous temporary jobs from inventory to packaging spices, locating auto parts and plating surgical scalpels.
I am a graduate of the University of Denver, but life is its own education, and so is reading! My love of books began early. I had my own library card before I was three years old. So many authors have inspired me that it’s not hard to understand why my writing is varied, too.
In reading, as in life, my motto is, “Have fun. It’s required.”

Although these are my first adult books, I have written several chapter books for children as Carolyn Gold. My first published book was a middle grade fantasy, Dragonfly Secret, which was nominated for the Sunshine State Young Readers Award. More recently, I’ve turned to e-books, with Ghosts Don’t Do Homework, Summer Camp Blues, and Mr. Ogilvie Told Me So, also chapter books for younger readers.
