Carol Cooper is an author, medical journalist, and doctor. She graduated in medicine from Cambridge University, with a little help from working at supermarket checkouts and penning music reviews.
After a string of parenting books and an award-winning medical textbook, she began writing the kind of novels she likes to read.
"One Night at the Jacaranda" was followed by "Hampstead Fever" which WH Smith chose for a prestigious front-of-store promo. Both are multi-stranded stories of love, lust, ambition, and family ties. The characters may be looking for love, but they end up finding themselves. Carol’s experience as a family doctor injects her writing with a keen understanding of human nature, finely observed medical details, and often irreverent wit.
In her other life, she teaches medical students, writes for Britain’s best-selling newspaper, and is President of the Guild of Health Writers. She’s involved with the Twins & Multiple Births Association and gives talks to parents of twins and triplets, which complement her popular book “Twins and Multiple Births: the Essential Parenting Guide”. Best of all, she has three amazing sons of her own.
Like the people in her books, she lives in Hampstead as well as Cambridge. She’s currently working on her next novel.
