Carol lives fifteen miles north of Silicon Valley in Redwood City, California, with her husband and her 10.5 pound poodle. She’s finishing up a novel set in Tokyo and about to shop it around with agents.

Since she first played “War” (a type of dodge ball) with a handsome, black-haired boy new to her otherwise all-white grade school, Carol has been crossing cultural bridges: to Asians, Africans, Europeans and Central Americans…

A variety of contexts — friendships, schooling, ESL teaching, reading, and marriage — have provided room for exploration, fueled her writing and raised curiosity about how others inhabit the world.
