Carol Smith

Carol lives in the Richmond metro area in Virginia. She has a husband and three cats—all rescues (the cats not the husband).

The desire to write struck her out of the blue one day in 2014. To date, she’s written magazine articles, fiction and nonfiction books, two collections, one of Halloween haiku poetry and one of short stories and poems, a children’s book, and stories that are included in anthologies. She’s always listening for her Muse’s next big idea.

Besides writing, Carol tutors reading for adult learners and investigates the paranormal. She taught earth science, acted in community theatre, and worked in information technology and in broadcasting as a commercial radio DJ.
