C is for Carole Anne Carr.



My introduction to Carole came in the Blogger.com world in 2010.  Blogging was new to me and Carole Anne Carr’s excellent writing showed me what blogging could open up.

Carole has so many credentials:

I have worked in a bank in Central Africa, have been a teacher, 
held the Office of Reader in the Church of England,

been a professional actress and sold my papier-mâché sculptures in Europe. 

I now work as a poet and writer of children’s adventure stories that are historically accurate and are used by teachers in schools and universities, in many parts of the world….

Carole Anne Carr has published (so far) eight books:
 First Wolf
Candle Dark
First Work,
Little-Boy-Good-For-Nothing,
Thin Time
River Dark
Kaleidoscope
, and The Angry Giant.  All excellent books, I can say from my reading.

Carole Anne Carr shares her love for books by donating her time frequently to reading aloud to school children.  This may be her greatest love of all.

C is for Carole Anne Carr.



God bless her and keep her!

  7. As a kid I always loved stories set in times past. I loved seeing history, as I knew it, unfold through the characters life. It gave a history life. Writing that way is a gift.

    Yay for Carole! Sounds like she's had a fascinating life. I enjoyed this.
