Author of the S.A.L.T. Novels – Seekers After Lost Treasure
Since leaving the business world behind, Carol has produced pro-bono documentaries, curated art exhibitions, studied drawing, traveled the world extensively exploring the far reaches of our planet capturing images of extraordinary people who live in exotic corners of the world in very ordinary moments of their lives. These moments mirror those most ordinary yet meaningful moments in our own lives…our work, raising children, practicing our faith, creating our homes. Many of these images, along with images of precious artifacts collected in her travels, have been combined with her prose and poetry into a powerful celebration of life in ten remote corners of the world in a book now out of print entitled To Life…in the Small Corners. Award winning CNN Anchor Bernard Shaw closed the book’s Forward with, The book confirms that in my nearly four decades of news reporting from the world capitals, I missed the best story…the story of the human family “in the small corners.” Angela Beckwith and Angela Fisher, photographers and writers who have produced award winning photographic books, films and a National Geographic feature article, described To Life in the Small Corners as a tour de force.
