Carol Chapman considers writing her fourth career following her years as an elementary school teacher, the financial manager for a small trucking company, and as her husband’s caregiver.

She starts her day with two cups of coffee and the morning quietness she craves. When she isn’t writing, Carol loves reading, movies (especially the popcorn), lunching with friends, volunteering, making collages, and dark, rich chocolate anytime, anywhere.

Stories about ordinary women who discover their strengths are her favorites ranging from memoir, light mysteries, and historical fiction. Books spill out of her home.

Carol lives with her favorite guy, Barney Pembroke Welsh Corgi Chapman, in her native state of Wyoming.
