Carol’s 2015 Events

Readers – Sharing ‘growing up country’ stories with others has opened my eyes to how many common experiences we all had. We laugh. We cry. In fact, I think I enjoy these visits as much as anyone who attends. With the launch my debut novel “Go Away Home,” I’ll be out and about even more. I invite you to join me if you can. If I’m not in your area, you can always join me on the Internet. Check below for blog events and then stop in and say, hi!
