One thought on “About Me

  1. Carol,
    You are beautiful, creative and multi-talented! Your YouTube video is impressive. The way you evolved after your divorce is spectacular! I can’t help but wonder how you manage to accomplish so much in regular 24-hour days!

    I am Penelope Love’s friend, Emily, author of Mystical Interludes. She tells me that you have a fascinating story that should go into my current book. I do hope you can take a little time from your mystery manuscript to send it or relate it to me. My mail box is P.O. Box 297, Lawrence PA 15055. If it would be more convenient for you to call, I am able to record your story as you relate it over the phone (724-554-1715). All that requires is for you to call at your convenience so you and I can arrange a time for the recorded call.

    I so look forward to hearing from you!

    Emily
