Born and raised in Ohio farm country, Carol moved to California at the age of eighteen and kept going....going to places she read about as a child and places she had only dreamed about. As the wife of a career Marine Aviator, she found herself moving constantly, living in and traveling to seven countries and thirty-nine states before settling in Texas. Along the way she sat down at kitchen tables to write short stories and poetry, touching on the lives of those she met during her travels, the odd and fascinating sorts, and the interesting and adventurous who crossed her path. She wrote about friends, family, and herself, touching on the zany-fun and humorous incidents of life. She included failures, losses, and heartbreaking experiences, as well as the odd, humorous, unique mishaps experienced.

Carol wrote incessantly in journals, sharing her stories and poems on how she, and those around her, survived the insanity of life, publishing them in magazines and newspapers over the years. But she would travel half way around the world before settling down to publish her poems and humorous stories in books.

During her traveling years she took time to skip through four community and state colleges, submersed herself in writing workshops and programs while juggling work and raising her daughters. One piece of advice she took to heart and followed was from Rod McKuhn, whom she met at coffee house poetry readings in the early 1960's. "Try writing free verse", he advised; so she has combined her rhyming and free verse poetry in five books, bringing comments from readers and fellow writers who describe her work as lyrical, haunting, captivating, and humorous.

Carol is a member of the Authors Guild in New York, the Texas Authors Association, and the Poetry Society of Texas. She has published five books of poetry, two books of humorous short stories, and has a movie script produced. She does free lance contributions to newspapers and magazines, speaks to adults and children on the joy and importance of writing, and volunteers with a children's charity in her town. She is married to nationally accredited Water Color Artist Robert W. Cook, they live beside a lake where they write and paint.
