These days her focus is the SERENDIPITY series with engaging and lovable small town characters, striking a balance between entertainment, humor and the emotion her readers have come to expect and enjoy.
THE FUN STUFF
Carly knows readers like to know about the authors they love to read, so here is all about Carly … in a nutshell:
Carly was born … a 3 pound 7 ounce preemie and as she grew up, her hair didn’t grow with her. Today she is hair obsessed and has been many colors, styles, and even textures over the years. People often ask her what my natural color is. She’s not telling. It’s more fun for you to guess. Obviously the hair grew. Some say it overgrew. And then the color fetish started and it continues.
Carly was raised … in Spring Valley, New York and attended Ramapo Senior High School. When she stepped onto the campus of Brandeis University (Waltham, MA) as a high school junior, she swore she wouldn’t go anywhere else. Good thing she got in because she met her future husband there and her oldest daughter attends now.
Carly has two girls … Two daughters, four years apart. Well planned for someone who knows their own limitations. She adore her girls, loves their “Mommy Movie Days”, and shopping, and hanging out with them.
Then added two furkids … For those of you who don’t know, Carly has two dogs, Bailey a soft coated Wheaten terrier and Brady a Havanese. Carly is obsessed with her dogs and will show you pictures if you ask, and even if you don’t!
A King size bed isn’t big enough … because Carly and her husband, girls and dogs are a family of couch potatoes. OK not exactly but close. They can be found watching shows, Tivo-ing what they miss, and doing so from the comfort of the bedroom. Carly loves to read, browse fashion magazines, knit and watch what’s left of ABC soaps.
To Sum Up … Carly is grateful for her blessings of which you, the reader are a part of!
