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 to three wonderful children.
Her constant sidekick is a sixteen-year-old miniature fox terrier. He enjoys traveling everywhere with her and doesn't mind keeping her company while she writes.
After living in 12 locations around New Zealand and 1 in Australia, it is her time spent in the various different areas that have taught her there are many perspectives from which life can be viewed and inspires her settings for her stories.
