About Me

 

 

I have recently jumped out of my institutional box where I was teaching criminology to students in Police Technology programs and Corrections at a college in Montreal, Canada. Vive La Belle Province. This leaving behind a long career has led me to an important question. How do I want to live the rest of my life? For one thing, I want to write. It has been a dream of mine since I was twelve. I can still see myself in our back yard in Sherbrooke, Quebec, where I was born, with my father’s Smith-Corona ribbon typewriter writing out stories. Since then I have always kept writing. I have written poetry and even self-published a collection of my poems to distribute to my family when I was about seventeen. In my filing cabinet, in drawers of my pine armoire and in boxes in my basement are manuscripts of short stories, novels for children, more poems, detective novels and other writings. I am working on three fresh writing projects:

  •  The Dating Club (women’s fiction)
  •  Cora’s Cry For Help (A crime who-done-it)
  •  A Simple Act of Love (A psychological crime novel)

I am the author of Mourning Has Broken- A Memoir on Grief (Amazon.com)  and three books in the field of English as a Second Language, the first of which was published by Harper & Row (1990). Pour Être Gagnant(e) (Beauchemin; 1991), Windows on Sci-Tech ( Thomson Publishing; 1997) . I have also published short stories in The Anthology of Canadian Authors Association, Room Magazine, Entre Les Lignes and Mindfulness.org.

Another answer to the question as to how I wish to live the rest of my life is with kindness and all that it implies.  I’d love to hear from you and what your thoughts are on living the remainder of your life.

Best regards,

Carol

    You will be astonished by the progress you make…

    It’s like French toast. You burn a few, a few might be too soggy, but eventually you get the mix of milk and egg right, and along the way you realize, it’s all about the bread you start with.

    And of course, paying attention to the toasting.

    Buon Lavoro!
