Born and raised in New Zealand, Carol has explored from Cape Reinga to The Bluff. Growing up, when she wasn’t traveling, camping and enjoying the outdoors – and even when she was – she read. 

Carol has worked in horticulture, admin, reception, car parts and even a stint in beauty therapy as a nail technician. But the role she treasures the most is being a mother of three wonderful children.

Her constant sidekick is a sixteen year old miniature fox terrier. While he bows to the four feline rulers of the house, he enjoys traveling everywhere with her and doesn’t mind keeping her company while she writes.

Carol acheived her Level 6 Diploma in Applied Writing and published her first two books, Heartbeat, and Take Down in 2019. Throughout 2020 she is studying her Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Applied Writing and publishing Consequences – book 3 in the Jae Family series.

After living in 12 locations around New Zealand and 1 in Australia, it is her time spent in the various different areas that has taught her that there are many perspectives from which life can be viewed and inspires her settings for her stories.
