       Carols books speak to us with her signature tongue in cheek voice expounding on life, the absurdities, and musing of being a woman, housewife, and working mother. She questions the unexpected mysteries of life and the ongoing quirky behavior of the masses. She asks why we’re so wasteful, how do we lose so much, and why there are so many untrained and incompetent drivers on the roadways. Her delightful, yet cranky opinions, gives us insight to those charging across our path appearing as if under the influence of ongoing confusion.


       Her candid, edgy voice protests, complains, and asks how intelligent appearing people get lost in familiar places, why is everyone lying, and why is there so much information on the ridiculous. She takes an amusing look at promises made, aging, marriage, reading glasses, restaurant failures, and phobia’s, along with everyday annoyances and illusions the general public indulges in.

       Carol’s witty, wise outlook of the real world, her accounts on living, loving, failures, and facts that befuddle millions speaks truthfully on every day disturbances and baffling situations. She gives us fun insights to napping,  foods we eat, waiting, and home ownership, sharing facts on stuff we didn’t know we should know until reading her charming, fun books.

       Her observations on the obnoxious and absent minded enlightens us with comical summarization of life while dishing on the uninformed and unaware. Those who forget and want to forget, the working and not working, and our ongoing medical maladies. She writes in a hilariously laugh-out loud language about aging bodies, eating habits, relatives, and asks such important questions as why we have over a thousand light bulbs to choose from when we only need one.

       Cooks take on our hit or miss conduct is revealed in hundreds of short stories, essays, and vignettes published in magazines, newspapers, and five books of humorous short stories. In an about face Carol turns her hand to pen free verse and rhyming poetry; described as sensitive, lyrical, and haunting. Born and raised in Ohio farm country she began writing as a young girl publishing her work in bulletins, newsletters, and magazines. It wouldn’t be until she had traveled halfway around the world before her first book was published.
