Carol Anne lives near the beautiful city of Edinburgh, close to her mum and her step-daughter and family. A rehab candidate for chronic tea and chocolate abuse, early retirement enabled her to fulfil a lifelong desire to write. She took courses at Edinburgh and Glasgow universities and is involved with various writing groups. Her short story, Bee and Let Bee, was published by Octavius magazine in 2013 and another short story, A Different Kind of Freedom, was runner up at the Bloody Scotland Crime Writing competition of the same year. Carol Anne's first novel, Project Me, was published by Crooked Cat in September 2014. In May 2015 she became one of eighteen contributors to the Look 4 Books Medley of Short Stories with 'Prescription for a Pal', all proceeds being split between The Autistic Society and The Alzheimer's Society, the latter being close to her heart. Carol Anne is about to begin her second novel so watch this space!
