Carol Grace Culver (aka Grace Carroll) was born with
wanderlust. She was raised in Illinois, but longed to
travel. She spent her junior year in college at the Sorbonne
in Paris. Armed with a BA in French, she went to San
Francisco to seek her fame and fortune. There she landed a
job as switchboard operator and receptionist at KQED, the
public TV station, where she met her future husband and did
on-the-air promos in French for her idol, Julia Child,
showing her parents that French was a useful major after all.
Restless after five years, she joined the hospital ship HOPE
for three voyages — Guinea, Nicaragua, and Tunisia.
After she married, she and her husband went to Algeria and
Iran to work. They loved the excitement of living abroad,
but returned to California to raise their two children in
their mountain-top home overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Carol
says that writing is another way of making life exciting.
Carol has published over 35 romance novels for
Harlequin/Silhouette. She’s written 2 single title
romances and three Young Adult novels. She is currently
writing mysteries. The first — A GOOD DAY TO
PIE — will be published in August 2011, the second
SHOE DONE IT comes out in October 2011.
