Welcome Carol

Tell us about you and your new release!

How much of the book is based in real life?
The idea for this book sprang from a visit my husband and I made to Longfellow’s Wayside Inn in Sudbury, MA, where we discovered the Secret Drawer Society. We found letters hidden in drawers in our room. Some were fictional. Some were not. One that particularly impressed me was written by a young bridegroom who was spending his wedding night there after being married in a near by chapel. Then he and his wife had returned to celebrate their fifth anniversary and he added to the letter. This gave me the idea for a hero and heroine to write letters back and forth to one another without knowing who the actual recipient would be…and hiding them in a desk.
Do you have a person you consider a mentor?
There are so many people who have influenced me and helped me along my writing path. But the person who started me on the road was my ex-boss, Laura. She was a writer and she was my biggest encourager in the beginning. She had majored in creative writing in college, and her ideas and influence were priceless.
What is your next project?
I am currently working on a novel entitled Always and Only You. It was inspired by a post I came across on Twitter in which a woman was wishing her husband happy anniversary and she related a little bit of their background. They had dated in high school, but she broke up with him because he wasn’t cool enough. She later became engaged to another man…well, I won’t tell you any more. But maybe you can guess from the title.
