Carol lives fifteen miles north of Silicon Valley in Redwood City, California, with her husband and her 10.5 pound poodle.

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.
